Free May Day Window Transparency Template | From Blue Bells and Cockle ShellsI made a free May Day Window Transparency template to share with you all. I’ve been trying to make one transparency a month. Next month, I am hoping to get away from relying so heavily on a silhouette, but I really wanted to illustrate the May Pole in this template. Sola has no idea what a May Pole looks like in real life and probably never will. While it used to be that some of the local cities hosted May Day events in the past, it seems like May Day in the Seattle area has just come to be associated with protests, riots, road closures, traffic jams, looting, and/or violence. Still, I wanted her to see what one looked like, so I made this transparency.

If you are unsure how to make these types of transparencies, I previously posted general directions for making window transparencies with kite paper.

As always, these files are free for you to use for your personal use. I hope you enjoy them!

Unfortunately, when we moved, […]
