You can find a bag of wood chips at Walmart or Joanns. or online  There are a variety of sizes–some are a little too big for necklaces or keychains.

You will need to drill a hole in the top to add your keychain or necklace….


I sneak my husband’s drill and it makes it go real fast! Make sure to get close to the top so you can add a jump ring or keychain…but not too close or it will break!

There are tons of ways to decorate–Just grab some paint and let them go!
