    Tie a knot at the bottom of the string and glue it to the small wooden ball.

Hand-made bookmarks are the perfect gift for a bookworm! In this example, we've made an adorable rabbit and bear. Start by painting the wooden balls any colour you like. Then attach a piece of linen string between the large and small wooden balls. Use the linen string to make ears on the rabbit. Use the string to give the bear fringe. Cut out the bear's ears from felt and glue them on, and glue on a bead as a nose. Remember to glue the knot into the hole on the small wooden ball to keep it securely in place. Finish by painting a face on the large wooden ball.
