Buri Animal Ornaments

Brushart OrnamentsBuri Ornaments are also known as Brushkin or Brushart Animal Ornaments

The Buri ornaments are awesome natural ornaments made from a Buri Palm tree without harming the tree.  They make absolutely adorable animal ornaments that often look quite real!

I love animals and some of my all time favorite Christmas decorations are the Brushkin animal ornament collection.

The holidays would simply not be complete, without a few of these adorable animal ornaments smiling at me from my Christmas tree.  They seem so very appropriate hiding in the branches, peering at me while I wrap gifts or go about my daily chores.

Several years ago, I put the little fox on my Christmas wish list.  I was thrilled beyond belief when my husband and children each gave me a new decoration for our tree.  That year I received the little fox, the hedgehog and the squirrel ornament.  All so very adorable and sweet.

These precious gifts sure add a lot of fun and cuteness to my day during the holiday season.  Each time I look at them, I am reminded of my thoughtful family.  They know how much I love keepsakes and they are always so good to me!

As you peruse this article, you will see notes in the little green boxes about why I am so crazy about the Brushkin ornaments.

My Brushkin Hedgehog Ornament

This is my own precious Brushkin Hedgehog ornament hanging on my own tree.

I absolute adore this little fellow!  He just has such a pleasant smile and a fabulous disposition.  He just hangs out there all day keeping me company and sharing his little smile.

You, too, can have your own hedgehog for you tree to share his delightful smile with you each day.  The hard part is putting him away when the holidays are over.

All of these Brushart animals are also adorable.   Of this group, I only have the fox.  I also have a squirrel, but not the grey squirrel.  Therefore, the grey squirrel, the raccoon and the beaver are on my current Christmas wish list.

This is my Squirrel!

As I previously stated, my squirrel is not grey like the one shown above.  He is brown, more like the live squirrels in our area of the world.

I love my little Buri squirrel ornament!

Isn’t he just the cutest little thing sitting there watching and waiting.  Makes me want to find him a little ear of corn just like I would for the real squirrels in my backyard.

Collections of Buri Animals

Collections are a easy way, and often less expensive way, to add fabulous Buri animal ornaments to your own Christmas tree.

Any of the collections of Buri animals are beautiful and perfectly shaped and colored for a true replica of the real animal.  I love being able to bring a bit of “wildlife” into my home during the holidays.  They really do look like they belong in the tree.

Buri Rabbit Ornament

Allow me to present my Brushkin Bunny Rabbit!

Now, this little girl hopped right into my heart the first instant I saw her.  Everyone knows I have a soft spot for rodents and rabbits are just so very precious.  She may not be as soft as a real bunny, but she is certainly just as adorable!  Truth be told, she is easier to take care of than a live rabbit.

Buri Rabbit included in Set

There is a rabbit included in the set below.  This set is a winter wonderland set and includes the rabbit, a squirrel and a raccoon.   You will note that they look like they have snowflakes scattered across their bodies and a lot of white around their faces as if they have been burrowing in the snow.

A Special Note of Thanks

Even though I discovered Brushkins Animal Ornaments several years ago, I was completely unaware of the precious little mouse ornament.  Needless to say, I, Sylvester”mouse”, jumped for joy when I saw the little Mouse Ornament featured in a dear friend’s article.  Yes, it is true!   Indigo Janson introduced me to the sweet little mouse in her article.

Thank you Indigo!  I will always think of you when I look at my newest family member on my own Christmas tree.  I shall name her after you and laugh anytime someone asks me why I named the mouse “Indigo”.

I have already commented about how I hate to put these animals away when the holidays are over.  In the case of the little mouse, I have one that stays out year round on my desk.  My son gave me the little mouse that keeps me company throughout the day.

Buri Fox Ornament

This is my sweetheart Fox!  I do love him, but I have to keep a close eye on him.

He is a sly little devil.  He thinks I am going to let him play with my rabbit or mouse, but nope!   Not gonna happen!  He has to stay on his own side of the tree.

The Fox Ornament is Sold in a Set

You can often get a better price by purchasing multiple Buri ornaments in a set instead of buying them all individually, especially if you are paying shipping costs.  The fox is available in a couple of different sets.  Choose your favorite set that includes a fox.

One set features the fox, a squirrel, and a rabbit.  Another set features the fox, a mouse and a rabbit.

One Final Note
Brushkins Animal Ornaments Are 30-50% Smaller Than Brushart Animal Ornaments, but they are all made with the same materials.
Both have been featured in this article.
