Step 1: Slit the stem With your fingernail or knife, make a slit lengthwise in the stem of one daisy about 2" below the blossom. Tip Two inches is just a suggestion. The closer you make the slit to the blossom, the denser your chain. Step 2: Thread the stem Thread the stem of a second daisy through the slit. Step 3: Slit and thread again Now make a slit in the stem of the second daisy. Thread a third flower through that stem. Tip You don't have to use daisies. Wild clover works well, as do pansies, poppies, and buttercups. Just check with your mom before you raid her garden! Step 4: Continue your chain Continue slitting and threading until your chain is as long as you'd like it to be. Step 5: Connect the chain Make a slit about twice as long as the others and carefully slip the head of the first daisy through it. Voila! You've created a crown—or necklace or bracelet—fit for a fairy queen. Did You Know? The word "daisy" means "day's eye"—because the flower closes up at night, then opens when the sun shines.
