Never once in my life have I made a daisy chain. I love love LOVE the look of them, the way they remind me of young girls with freckles and bare feet braiding each other's hair and picking flowers, how they are a very relaxing way to spend some time on a sunny day in spring. Perfect to get your mind off things. My boy and me walked over to our town's football field last Saturday to frolick around in the sun. He kicked the ball around, and I sat down to make a daisy chain. The field was filled with daisies! This calls for a tutorial for all you daisy virgins out there.
What you need:
a fiel full of daisies
A nail on your pinky finger
What to do:
Try and find the daisies with thicker stems (makes it easier to create the holes). Make a small opening in the stems by wedging your pinky nail into it. Make sure to make a closed circle and not to tear the stem. Carefully open up the hole and pull through the next daisy. Repeat until you have a long strand of daisies. To close your chain, repeat the same technique using your first and last daisy. Et voila! I wore mine the rest of the evening, even grocery shopping. It looks so pretty.

Don't you just love my weird mid talking pose? I look like I'm mime-DJ'ing, scratching the record with my right hand and holding my earphones with the left :-D
