Flora Ornament Pack by Outer Island
97mm x 49mm
Hand-painted Wooden Ornaments with jute twine / painted one-side. Designed and made locally in Sydney. Bring the magic of Australian nature into your home this year with this mix of iconic Australian blooms bound to brighten up any room. Including a Wattle, Gum Blossom and Banskia Pod Ornament, the flora pack celebrates the uniqueness of plants within Australia. All native plants, the three are well adapted to Australia’s poor soil and thrive here. Wattle hosts a helper bacteria at its roots which improves poor soil conditions helping it to grow while gum Blossoms don’t contain petals. Instead they have brightly coloured stamens to attract birds. Banksias 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.
