I think daisies are super underrated. They’re cheap, they hold up really well, and they’re cute as a button. For this shoot with Jess Wilcox, I wanted to explore different ways to wear flowers. I had talked to Jess about pining daisies through out the models hair and Jess had the brilliant idea to use eyelash glue. We found the Duo eyelash glue from Sephora (available right here) worked best. To recreate the look:
-Remove daisies from their stems
-apply a bit of glue to the back of the daisy
-using alligator clips, place the daisy and clip into the hair, let set for a few minutes
-remove clip and ta da!
Aside from daisies in her hair, I also made petite daisy earrings. Using simple silver earring hook wires from Michaels (also available here on Amazon) I simply threaded some 20 gauge silver flower wire through the back of the daisy and then secured it to the earring hook using pliers.
You can also use daisies to make rings. I used green floral wire, threaded it through the back of the daisy, forming a loop. And bam, instant flower power jewelry.
Of course, what would a daisy story be without a daisy chain? I simply layered them one over the other and tied them together with fishline.
Special thanks to Jess for wrangling wardrobe (Free People, dress available here), the model and doing the awesome hair and makeup!
