Pretty! I remember those pretty little flowers from up north. (You don't see them here in Florida.) I liked them because they looked fuzzy.  Cheesy

the simplest way to make the "daisy chain" as i've found it, is as followed:

gather a bunch of flowers with pretty decent width stems. the fatter the stem the eaiser to make the chain.

start with your first flower and spit the stem near the bud with your thumb nail [the hard way] or a craft knife [the easy way] so the split resembles the eye of a sewing needle, about a 1/2 inch split] longways, not side to side!

take your next flower and thead the stem of the second flower through the slit you just made and pull so the bud is flush with the hole of the split stem.

again make a split in the stem of the second flower and thread the next flower so on and so forth. i like to tuck the stems in from the previous flower into the splits so it looks neat.

and there you have it! a simple way to make flower jewlery!!

This is cool! I've never seen a wreath made from clover, though I used to eat it a lot as a kid  Roll Eyes
Ever since Alice in Wonderland I've tried to make these. Thanks for the tute!

the clover around here isn't pretty like that, it's just white and the only thing I've seen that resembles that has some nasty thorns on it, so when you said the kid wouldn't hold still, I thought well neither would I if someone put thorns on my head.

Thank you for sharing.  This is very nice!

I think I'll go find a field of clover, right now, and plunk myself in the middle of it, commune with the bumblers and make one of these.

Does it dry nicely?

  you could accesorize with a rhino horn made from a rose thorn. Did you ever do that? Snap off a rose thorn, lick the back, and stick it to your nose? It's more fun than it sounds...
