I got this idea at a woman's festival in PA decades ago. Of course, the large group made a HUGE Maypole to dance around; however, a presenter also gave us a simple May Day craft.

Find three (3) pieces of blue ribbon. Tie them together and then braid them so that they cross or meet five (5) times. Secure the other end so it doesn't come undone.

The chant or spell as you create is:

"Tis the month of May, for (whatever you want...health, joy, etc.) I wish today

"Ribbons of blue, help my wish come true

"Braided within the spell begins

"Bound to and fro the magick grows

"When in Fall untied, this wish is mine!"

Of course, this is a sweet MayDay gift to give friends, family & especially yourself.

Send the braided ribbon to your partner to hold sacred for her. (honestly, when the braid comes untied, the wish is yours!
