These are made from all sorts of wood and come in different shapes and sizes. As you can see they are perhaps best suited as ornaments for the mantel piece or side table but can be hung from the tree if wished. I do several different sizes depending on the woods available to me but sell them as small, medium and large. Large ones tend to be about 5 - 6" tall and are pretty weighty so you will need a good sized tree if you decide to hang him. Each one is lovingly dressed with a hand knitted scarf made by Sue (my wife) who also makes sure that they have eyes and a mouth with her pyro pen.
