Gourds?

Post by MauEvig » Fri Feb 27, 2015 8:24 pm

Carving Pumpkins is fun, but I wonder if we should limit ourselves to just carving pumpkins for Halloween?

I actually found some cute ideas with Gourds like this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/notbrucelee/2645522458/

I'm thinking about adding gourd bird houses to my Box of Art Creations! line anyway, so I figured I'd share some designs I found on google that looked interesting and I might try my own version.

This link has some neat examples of Halloween and other holidays like Christmas, or for year-round decorating:

If you can think of any Halloween decorating or carving with gourds, please share here!

I'm still planning to carve pumpkins, but I thought it would be fun adding gourds to the mix, since they are already a fun crafty plant to decorate.

Gourds and "Ghost" pumpkins are what I am planning to plant this year if I get around to it. If I am successful, I will share my creative projects with you all. :)

Thanks! I'll let you know.
Who knows maybe I'll even come up with some of my own designs. Of course I'm going to have to attempt at least one black cat. :lol:
