This ornament is a wood slice product and handcrafted...from start to finish. Our ornaments are approximately 3" to 5" in diameter. Each wood slice comes from trees responsibly harvested in the Finger Lakes area. Each wood slice is live edge, meaning that the bark is still intact, giving each wood slice a unique look. It is normal for a small amount of flaking to occur over time, adding even more character to each wood slice. Our wood slice products are dried to industry standards and sealed for durability. Please remember that our wood slice products are made from a natural material, and may degrade over time if stored or handled improperly. We recommend hanging them in a location where they will not fall to the floor. For storage, we recommend a cool, dry place without extreme temperature changes.
