I read the reviews before I ordered this item. I saw that two people stated the bales were hard and you could not stick anything into them. I almost did not buy this item but it was a good price and I liked how they came individually packaged. I received them fast and they were just what I wanted. I just used a knife to cut a small slip in the top and the stick went in with no problem and held it so firm that I didn't have to use glue. It turned out perfect! I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a 5 inch bale for decorations.

itty bitty

There was no use for this. Its way too small and so compacted. We couldn't even stick anything through it. Its like a hard block.

    Comments:

    These are the cutest decorating item I have found in a long time. Used the bale as a base for making centerpieces for a Cowboy Luau event I was chairing for an organization. They were easy to work with although a bit messy as the little bales shed some of the straw.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent delivery and service as my order was processed quickly and shipped quickly as well.

    We used it at a child's farm party to stick signs in. It was the base for a lot of signs labeling food. They were adorable but do shed a lot so you have to be gentle with them.

          Ordered a few of these for my daughter's western theme party. They are really cute, but I thought for the price that they'd be a little bigger. Some of the "straws" have fallen off before being opened also. Still very cute!

                      I looked and looked for miniature hay bales and finally found them on your site. I was putting on a western-themed baby shower for my daughter and we had a clear vision of what we wanted for centerpieces for the tables. Although these were a little messy taking out of the bags, they were durable and so adorable. The centerpieces turned out so cute! Although they seemed a little pricier than I was looking for, I just had to have them! I saved all the individual bags and was able to re-bag them after the shower and box them up. I think they will store nicely and can be used for another event in the future. So because of that, well worth the money. Oh and did I mention how adorable they are? :-)

                        I read the reviews before I ordered this item. I saw that two people stated the bales were hard and you could not stick anything into them. I almost did not buy this item but it was a good price and I liked how they came individually packaged. I received them fast and they were just what I wanted. I just used a knife to cut a small slip in the top and the stick went in with no problem and held it so firm that I didn't have to use glue. It turned out perfect! I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a 5 inch bale for decorations.

                            50th H S class reunion coming up. I am on the committee and we wanted to see what we could put together for a quick table decoration that could be quickly removed. This fits the bill. It may be used to steady silhouette of the mascot for the table.
