How to make a Marguerite Crown

Right now my days are full of children and baby activities.
Relishing those precious moments with a new baby I will take a little extra time and start sewing again in about two months.

For today I would like to share how we make flower crowns. Its a quick and easy thing to do with little ones beside in a flower meadow and at least in my case it makes them very happy!
All You need is: Marguerites

and some flexible blades of grass
tie your flowers together
and start to braid the flower stems like shown on the pictures.
Add more flowers and continue braiding like shown on the pictures.

Use some more flexible blades of grass and attach both ends together.

And enjoy!
If Your crown becomes a bit withered You can put it in a bowl with cold water over night and the flowers will be fresh to grace little pricesses again for another day.
