Mini Ornament Wreaths from Wool Scraps

What do you do with tons of scraps of felted wool sweaters?  (And I do mean tons!)
You make really cute mini wreaths for Christmas ornaments, some of them I organized colors, I love this blue and green one!
And this one that matches my snowflake wreaths!  I had lots of blue and white scraps...
My favorites were the multicolored ornaments. I thought they looked real patchworky!
But I also loved the green and red wreaths...very Christmasy!
And I made one all pinks and blues and white for baby's first Christmas.
Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a fuzzy item and make it look crisp and sharp?
One more project done for my craft show next Sunday...that is only six days away now!
