A wreath so easy you won't break a sweat!

Made a couple of these felted sweater wreath's last year for the holiday.  Thought I'd share how wonderfully easy these beautiful wreaths are to make!

Step 1 - Procure 1 large wool sweater
Step 2 - Felt it (as far as my crafty expertise goes - felting is just washing said wool sweater on hot and then drying it so it shrinks up and the fibers become very tightly woven)
Step 3 - Chop it up into squares.  No need to be perfect (this is a perfect TV watching craft - my fave kind!)
Step 4 - Bend a wire hanger into a wreath shape
Step 5 - Pierce squares of fabric onto hanger until full

Step 6 - Retwist hanger and attach a bow
Step 7 - Show it off

Going to link up to the Fireflies and Jellybeans Iron Crafter party!  Fingers crossed!  Just kidding, the party is closed!  That's what happens when you're late!  Go over and see all the great sweater projects!

Instead,I've linked up to these awesome parties!
