Banksia Pod Ornament by Outer Island
96mm x 49mm
Hand-painted Wooden Ornament with jute twine / painted one-side. Designed and made locally in Sydney. Bring the magic of Australian nature into your home this year. The northern hemisphere has Father Christmas and we have Old Man Banksia. Native to Australia, banksias are found widely throughout Sydney. Beloved as a snack for many birds, these plants redefine the meaning of a midnight snack by blossoming at night and becoming food for our nocturnal friends. Since this item is handmade, each ornament is slightly varied in patterning, texture, wood grain or burn.
Price includes shipping within Australia direct from Outer Island
