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:

    I neglected to pay attention to the dimensions. They are small...more like a crafting size, or part of a table centerpiece. I was looking for a size big enough for my pre-k children to sit on. I ordered the wrong size, but we are using them in a wild west interest center that has pretend buildings, cowpokes, horses and cows. I covered them in tight plastic wrap to make them last a bit longer.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Arrived in great shape and sooner than expected.

      This will be my 7th Halloween party. This year I wanted to remember the past 6. So I'm making centerpieces for each table depicting a different party. The mini straw bales are working perfectly with the theme from my third party. I've piled them. Put skewers in each corner and draped tiny black and orange paper chains crisscross over the bales. Little pumpkins around the bottom. That year we decorated with paper chains, it was a look back at how we decorated when I was a kid...a l o n g time ago!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Yes, yes, and yes.

      Using at a Western Themed function for a Women's Business Organization. They are cute to use on bar tables with mason jars and tealights. Only drawback is that they shed too much...They either need to be tied more and or sprayed with a glue.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Yes delivery was prompt and within estimated time.

        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!

                        It is real hay so they can get a little messy but they are perfect for our western themed party! Im so glad I got them!

                          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.

                                  These were cute for decorating my son's cowboy party! Other than the fact they were a little messy, they worked perfectly!

                                    I bought these to go along with my wedding reception centerpieces and they are adorable! They are a great value for the price, and it will add a unique aspect to rustic centerpieces without being too large and going overboard with the hay. I can't wait to show them off.

                                    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.
