Beaded Wood-Veneer Garland
Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2008
With a small flower punch, cut out shapes from birch-wood veneer. Add a center hole in each with a 1/16-inch punch.
Using a beading needle and a length of thread, string beads and cutouts, alternating as desired. Repeat to create more sections, leaving enough thread at both ends so that you can tie pieces together to form a single garland.
