Daisy Chain Necklace
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.
Tip: 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.
Pinch flower stems to about 4 inches. Make a small slit in the bottom half of each stem with your nails.
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.
