Weeds never looked so Lovely

In my blog travels I happened along a magical place called Childhood Magic.

Love this blog.  Sadly it is going away.   But before it left it prompted me to dig through my Secret Garden and create this for Hope.

And for Princess… who knew weeds could look so lovely.

Summer 262 

The instructions are simple.  Put a slice through the stem of your flower (or weed) 1-2 inches down the stem and feed the stem of another flower through it.  Continue on until you have a flower chain.  I added an extra long slice to the last stem to gently guided the first flower through it.

Loved making these for my girls.

I have a feeling we are going to be enjoying our flowers and weeds this year.

Can you believe I’ve never made Daisy Chains before?  Maybe it’s because I grew up as a tom-boy and have only embraced the little girl crafts after having daughters of my own.  Can I just say that I’m enjoying my second childhood immensely.  Don’t you just love these free crafts?
