Giant Dandelion Chains

Thanks to an endless supply of sunlight in the summer months, we have some of the biggest dandelions growing near our house. As you can see, they are at least 2 feet tall.
When you pop the flower off the stem you see that the stem is like a hollow straw. You simply loop the stem into a circle and stick the skinnier end into the thicker end.... then keep adding more loops. The smaller ones made nice round loops while the huge stems created more angular shapes.

I knew it was a good idea to let those sunny weeds grow free.


  1. wow, those are HUGE - FUN!!!

  2. Oh, they're so big!
