When's the last time you made a daisy chain? Long approved by daydreaming girls across the country, it's still the sweetest summer accessory around.
Make a long bohemian strand, a demure choker, or anything in between. Show your kids how to link flowers, and watch their creativity grow.
True daisies are in season, but they're quite fragile. We used daisy chrysanthemums, which are found year-round at most florists (and even supermarkets) and hold up better out of water.
1. Pinch flower stems to about 4 inches. Make a small slit in the bottom half of each stem with your nails.
2. Thread 1 stem through the slit in another. Continue, adding flowers to reach desired length. To finish, make a second slit in the stem of the first flower, and slip the last flower through it.
