NOT A TOY - SHOULD NOT BE INGESTED! That means, do not EATyour tinsel & wash hands after working with tinsel. How many packs of lead tinsel do you need for your tree? Much depends on heavily tinseled you would like your tree, but an average 5-6 ft. tree may take about 3 packages or calculate about one package per 2 to 3 feet of tree, for an "average" density of tinsel on the tree. Shipping: I ship this item via FAST USPS 1st Class or PRIORITY shipping with Delivery Confirmation. Your purchases are always insured & are covered by eCRATER buyer protection as well. Contact me with any other shipping questions you may have. To my valued European and Australian buyers: International Priority Flate Rate mail has been extremely reliable in the past. This year, it seems to be very slow & unreliable. While I will still ship first class and priority if that is what you prefer, please be aware that shipments have been taking even longer than the 6 to 10 business days estimated by the Post Office. If receipt of your item is time critical, please choose EXPRESS shipping.
