How to Make a Crazy Daisy

It's summer time. The kids have been out of school for weeks. They have watched every movie you own, played every video game, and are sunburned from all the time they have spent in the pool. They are BORED! What now?

Crazy Daisies are the perfect solution. The kids can make a couple, or a whole bouquet of them. There are a million things you can do with them. Here are just a few ideas.
  • Decorate your flip flops, a bag, or a pillow
  • Glue them onto magnets or tacks to decorate the office
  • Tie them together for a flower lei
  • Make pencil toppers
  • Use them as napkin rings
  • Tie them onto pipe cleaners and make a bouquet
  • String them together onto a cheery garland to decorate their room
  • Crochet them together and make an afghan, seriously

Materials

  • A Bloom Loom and plastic needle - You can get these for less than $3 at a craft supply store
  • Yarn - Clean out your leftovers or get a few funky colors
  • Scissors
The looms come with instructions, but if you lose them, or would like my to read my little tutorial with pictures, here it goes.

Directions


Think of the Bloom Loom like a clock. It has 12 sets of pegs like the 12 numbers on a clock. The pegs between the two notches are the 6.
You will start making petals on the outer set of pegs.


Tie a knot in your yarn about 8 inches from the end. Slip the knot under the notch between 5 and 6 so that the short end of yarn is beneath the loom and the yarn you are going to make petals with is on the side with the pegs and goes from the notch to the space between 11 and 12.


Wrap the yarn in a figure-eight around pegs 12 and 6, three times. Once you have wrapped it around 6 the third time, position the yarn between  10 and 11.


Wrap the yarn in a figure-eight around pegs 11 and 5, three times. Once you have wrapped it around 5 the third time, position the yarn between 9 and 10.

Do you see how this is working?

Make three figure eights around pegs 10 and 4, then three around 9 and 3, then three around 8 and 2, and three around 7 and 1.


Once you have wrapped the third petal around peg 1, bring the yarn down through the notch between 6 and 7. Cut the yarn leaving an eight inch tail.

Now you are going to make petals on the inner set of pegs with a different color.


Tie a knot in your second color of yarn about 8 inches from the end. Slip the knot under the notch between 5 and 6 so that the short end of yarn is beneath the loom and the yarn you are going to make petals with is on the side with the pegs and goes from the notch to the space between 11 and 12.

Wrap the yarn in a figure-eight around pegs 12 and 6, two times. Once you have wrapped it around 6 the second time, position the yarn between  10 and 11.

Wrap the yarn in a figure-eight around pegs 11 and 5, two times. Once you have wrapped it around 5 the second time, position the yarn between 9 and 10.

You see how this works.

Make two figure-eights around pegs 10 and 4, then two around 9 and 3, then two around 8 and 2, and two around 7 and 1.


Bring the yarn down between pegs 6 and 7. Cut the yarn leaving about an 18 inch tail. Use this tail to thread the needle.

There are a couple different ways you can finish your flower from here. Both are just as easy. You pick.

 Finishing - Across the Center


Pull your needle down between 6 and 7,



up between 12 and 1, and down between 6 and 7.

Pull your needle up between 11 and 12, down between 5 and 6, and up between 11 and 12.

Pull your needle down between 4 and 5, up between 10 and 11, and down between 4 and 5.

Pull your needle up between 9 and 10, down between 3 and 4, and up between 9 and 10.

Pull your needle down between 2 and 3, up between 8 and 9, and down between 2 and 3.

Pull your needle up between 7 and 8, down between 1 and 2.


Flip over the loom and pull the needle under a few strands of yarn at the center of the loom. (If it's to tricky to do this while the flower is still on the loom, you can gently slip it off the loom, then slide the needle under a few strands of yarn on the back.)


Slip the flower off of the loom. Turn the flower face down. Separate the tails of yarn so one tail from the outer flower and one from the inner flower  go to the left and one tail from each go to the right.

Tie a knot.

Finishing - In a Circle


Pull your needle down between 6 and 7, up between 5 and 6.

Down between 7 and 8, up between 6 and 7.

Down between 8 and 9, up between 7 and 8.

Down between 9 and 10, up between 8 and 9.

Down between 10 and 11, up between 9 and 10.

Down between 11 and 12, up between 10 and 11.

Down between 12 and 1, up between 11 and 12.

Down between 1 and 2, up between 12 and 1.

Down between 2 and 3, up between 1 and 2.

Down between 3 and 4, up between 2 and 3.

Down between  5 and 6, up between 3 and 4.

Down between 6 and 7.


Flip over the loom and pull the needle under a few strands of yarn at the center of the loom. (If it's to tricky to do this while the flower is still on the loom, you can gently slip it off the loom, then slide the needle under a few strands of yarn on the back.)


Slip the flower of the loom. Turn the flower face down. Separate the tails of yarn so one tail from the outer flower and one from the inner flower  go to the left and one tail from each go to the right.

Tie a knot.


The finished product, quiet kids pretty flowers :)
