Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am sorry but after reading thru the directions I have to agree with a previous poster. This is just not explainitory enough. It needs better instructions, or graphics or even a video. It is a cute idea and I would love to have it but I just can't get it.

This project REALLY needs some photos to show how this is assembled. That one little graphic on how to form a French Knot just doesnt cut it. The directions for the ruffle are completely baffling. I dont even find out until the very end that the ruffle will be GLUED to the wreath instead of stitched. I like the look of this project, but the directions do not do it justice.
