Feel free to pluck all sorts of different shapes and colors!

Step 3: Begin the process

Using your thumbnail, carve a half inch slit into the stem of the daisy.

Step 4: Link the daisies

Once you have created a slit, take another daisy from your collection and pull the stem through the slit of the original daisy. This creates the chain-like effect that we are ultimately looking for. Repeat this step as many times as you please to achieve a desired length for the daisy chain.

Step 5: You're almost done!

Once you have linked all of your daisies together, you must finish off the chain by connecting the first daisy to the last daisy. To do so, you must make a slit in the last daisy on the chain. But this time, instead of making the slit a half inch long, go for about an inch. This way you can link the original daisy through the slit. To make the daisy fit through the slit more readily, you may pluck the petals off of your original daisy, and pull her on through!

Step 6: Voila!

You now have yourself a good ol' fashioned daisy chain. Now it is up to you to decide what you will do with your groovy masterpiece. From my experience, I find that you can really spread the joy by simply giving the gift of daisies to a friend, or even a friendly stranger. Try it out!

So where were you when I was a little kid trying to make these? The best I got was to split the stem of the daisy in two and then try to tie them together, yea, didn't work well. But, since I'm now a kid at heart instead of a kid for real, I'll make them and share them with my grandkids! They'll love learning this--- thanks!
