Purchase an approximately 4" x 4" beveled wooden block from your local craft store. Sand it down so it's not so rough. Stain the sides. Use 3-4 coats, following instructions, lightly sanding between coats. Paint top surface with acrylic color of choice. After drying, seal with acrylic gloss sealer. Using regular craft glue, adhere half moon acrylic beads in random pattern to top. Once dry, cut to fit adhesive thick felt to bottom.
Make 4 for a gift set.
