It's looks to be knitted...
. I have that pattern in my Ravelry library...turned out quite lovely in white!
Could you use a chopstick with a flower or even button attached?
I don't seem to be destashing at all...I brought home over 30 wooden picture frames from a friend's garage sale...I couldn't refuse because she "saved" them for me since she knew I crafted...she wanted me to take the other three boxes, but I just did not have room in my car...I paid dirt cheap for them ... like zero!
