I'm really excited to have gotten these Natural Wood Slices! They're a nice variety of shapes, real wood, not too thick, and not all perfectly round. They've got holes drilled in them, so you can use them for crafts. I'm going to make some Christmas ornaments and keep some on hand for other holidays and for making gifts. You could make coasters out of them, as well. They're nicely smooth and sanded. But unfinished, so they're ready to be painted or varnished, or whatever you want to do with them. I love that they also come with the hemp rope. This is a huge set and a great deal! I'd definitely recommend them.
