I bought these as I am trying todecorate my own baubles this year, and I was hoping they would serve the dual purpose of giving me somewhere to let the baubles hand while paint dried and serve to display them when they are finished. They work great, exactly as I had hoped they would do.
However, they will need to be painted themselves as each of them has small cracks all in the joints where the top curve meets the base. Such a shame as they are ideal. If you were planning to buy lots and sell them with your work suspended from them then touching up each individual item may put you off. As I only need the 5 then remedying might be a pain, but it's not going to cost me man-hours of business time.
Still a good value item, they feel very secure and unllikely to tip over. Of course, it could just be that my batch have been damaged in transit. All in all, I am more than happy with my purchase. But if you're a perfectionist, be prepared to tough those joints up.
