Holiday Welcome Wreath Reviewed by Lara Buser on 2009-10-02 ***
Nice wreath. However, I don't see the tassels. It looks like you just used them as a means of adding a "criss cross" to the red stripes. So, just add another stripe in the first color. We don't need additional work that doesn't even show up. This is a beautiful wreath and adding additional balls wrapped in green (color A) works just fine. This is a fun wreath to make and I am going to give it a try with my grandkids using a jiffy yarn and purchased pompoms. They are still little and wrapping all those balls will not work for them just yet but they like crafting with Grandma. Thanks for the design.
