Beaded Tape Core WreathDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This wreath is made almost the same way as the very first pattern I ever designed. It is made with an empty plastic ring from the core of a roll of transparent tape. So if you have any of those empty tape cores around and you do not want to throw them away, you can make these wreaths very quickly and give them out as gift toppers.
