H ere is a 60 minute project for those of you who like woodwork but don’t have a lot of time on your hands.
All you need is some cube-shaped wooden beads, sand-paper, paint and a bit of cord to string them onto.
YOU WILL NEED:

+ Some cube shaped wooden beads
+ Sandpaper (fine and medium grade)
+ Acrylic paint

1. Take your bead. Using a pencil mark the mid-way point on 3 adjoining edges. Join each of the points with a straight line as shown. I also drew a second triangle on the opposite corner of the bead.
2. Sand both corners down. I used a dremel drill but medium grade sandpaper will do the job just as well.
3. Sand all the faces with a fine grade sandpaper.
4. Paint both triangular faces in a pretty colour.
5. String onto some cord.
….if you do manage to find some more spare time you can make your own beads from a chunk of wood (Happy Friday BTW!)
