The Summertime Daisy Chain Necklace

Daisy Chain Necklace

I love daisies.  They conjure up happy, innocent, playful and worry-free feelings in me.  And seeing my daughter run around in daisy chain necklace is just a precious summertime moment turned forever memory.

 

You’ll love how simple these are to make.  You will only need scissors, a knife, and daisies (or other flower).  Tape is optional.

1.  With a knife, slit the stem.  The closer you want your flowers to be, the closer your slit should be to the head of the flower

2.  Push another stem through that slit.

3.  Now make a new slit in the second stem and repeat until your chain is as long as desired.

4.  Trim the excess stems except for the first and last.  Wait on these.

5.  To close your chain, send the first stem through a slit in the last stem.  I decided to throw some tape on it to secure.  Next time, I am going to try weaving that first stem through two slits in the other stem.  If you try it, let me know how it works.

This is last year’s daisy chain with the flowers more spaced out.

  1. There is something so magical about daisy chains! I wore one in my hair on my wedding…I think I need to get some pictures of my little girl wearing one now! :)

    • Summer, that sounds lovely! And wouldn’t that be the cutest to have your daughter’s picture next to your own in a scrapbook or photo book? Love that! I have some dresses that were mine as a child and I have been trying to catch similar poses/locations with my daughter wearing it now . . . tying it all together. :) Thanks for leaving a comment!

  2. This is so precious! I am loving your site.

  3. Such a cute idea and pretty little girl. I love flower crafts. Thanks for sharing. Pinned!
