miniature wool wreath using felted wool sweaters
Today's activity is a miniature wool wreath using felted wool sweaters. If you don't have any felted wool sweaters on hand then try regular felt but you will need more squares to fill the wreath up. I used 53 squares but how many you use will depend heavily on the thickness of the sweaters and how tightly you pack them onto the wreath. I made a little flower for mine using three circles of felt in different sizes and finished with a button in the center. I think they look great with or without a flower but I'll leave that up to you. The finished wreath is about 4 1/2" in diameter.
