There is nothing more summery to me than a flower chain — fresh weeds / flowers picked from a meadow AND the time to just make a flower chain. I love it.
Any time I find a field with flowers, I just CANNOT NOT (yes double negative) stop to make a flower chain.
Ok, so how do you do it. STEP 1 is the most tedious. Pick lots of flowers. The longer the stem, the better.
Then, the first part, you just start a braid. Yes, it is that simple. You braid them together.
And as you braid, you add more flowers in — just like you would do a french braid.
Caught in the act.
This took 3 minutes. Once you get the hang of it, it just flows all together.
Do you see the backside — the braid?
This was the main attraction — a building from the 1st century (yes 1st century). It was beautiful, just like the flowers.
I like to do them for center pieces.
On the table.
I also love to make them into flower wreaths. Happy flowers, happy summer! More next week — have a great weekend.
