Dried out gourds




Every year I buy a few mini gourds and pumpkins. They are so cute. Did you know that if you hold onto them, they can be re-used? I read that last fall, and decided to save a few down in my basement and see what happened.

I had one nasty little turd that didn't fare too well. I threw it out.

The other two survived but look diseased. When I shake them, all the seeds rattle around inside. Cool! But they are discolored and ugly. Paint can cover a multitude of ugliness....Plus it was nice to have my own "project" to paint while the kids were playing with the craft paint.

they look great! Native Americans used dried gourds for all kinds of things... esp musical instruments- most were vibrantly painted too!
