Wood Gemstone Garland | Tell Love & Chocolate Does your house need some bling? Then whip up this gemstone garland (in two different designs) and hang them where you need a bit of colour and fun. The ‘wood’ part of this design is balsa wood which is so soft that you can cut it with a Stanley knife. I love both designs butI have to say the one on the right is my favourite. You could even make the pattern in glue and add glitter to make a sparkly design!
