Wooden barrels were once used for storage and transporting everything from gunpowder to nails. This miniature Old Time Wooden Barrel, made from wood, looks like it is vintage with a naturally aged patina. The cask is detailed with vertical staves and horizontal hoops. Prop the miniature barrel outside of a general store, in the miniature garden, to look as if a shipment of spices recently arrived. Another idea is to place the Old Time Wooden Barrel on the patio and set a mini potted plant on top. The barrel is made from a solid piece of wood and it does not have an opening.
