Two sizes of wooden beads
Wooden star decorations with hanging hole in top
Bodkin or large tapestry needle

2 Thread the other end through the bodkin or needle and begin pushing the beads onto the twine.
3 Once you’ve threaded on three beads, continue with a star, then another three beads, then another star, and then six beads. Continue in this pattern until you reach the last 15cm of the twine.
4 Knot the end to form a hanging loop and spread out the beads and stars evenly along the garland.
1 Drill a 5mm hole into the base of the log slice. Slip the 4mm thick wooden dowel into the hole.
2 Fill the hole with glue from a hot glue gun and allow to dry. Make sure to hold the dowel upright as the glue sets.
