Felt Penny Wreath

Today, we have the luxury of purchasing readymade felt pennies, which makes this richly-hued, heritage wreath a super-fast craft. However, felt pennies are not hard to make, and like our forebears, you can use fabric scraps and repurpose old woolen garments and knit sweaters to create your own.
