You will need

• One thick branch

• Embroidery yarn in different colors

• Sewing needle

• Wax thread or thin ribbon for hanging

• Saw

• Drill


1. Saw thin slices of a thick branch.

2. Sketch a design of your choice onto the slice of wood, with a pencil. TIP: The simpler the design the better – for example hearts and stars work really well.

3. Then, drill thin holes along the lines of your design and a hole at the top of the wood slice for hanging.

4. Using your embroidery yarn and needle, sew stitches into the holes to bring your pattern to life.

5. Finally, thread wax thread or ribbon through the top of your wood slice and it is ready to hang up!
