Any gourd will do! It can be made out of wood, glass, styrofoam, etc.. use your imagination for this one, orginality will count. Anything goes, as long as it comes out looking like a gourd.

I get some of my gourds from them and have been very satisfied in their quality.

LaVonne is right about the Welburn Gourd Farm, I went to the festival there in 2004 and it is such a nice woodland area. If you click on their site, they have some gourd tutorials and kind of like U-tube videos that are free. I think it is called Gourd.com . Lot of ideas there too..

I'll be around if anyone needs me, I'm at either of the three forums listed below my signature line if you need me, don't hestitate to hunt me down or cmail me..

Good going... I thought about this one night as I was falling asleep and when I woke up, I guess I had forgot what I thought about the night before..

Glad you bumped it up also..

So, how many participants do we have so far? Anyone know? (6)?

I found some neat pins on the internet, I posted the link on one of the threads here. I think they make jewelery with them, it didn't show HOW to do it, but I love the little pins they made for the kids.

I hate to cut into the gourds though, it is almost like ruining them.. but, you can glue onto them, mosaic, burn, carve, paint, almost anything.

Now taking an oil painting class maybe will enable me to paint one one day.

Well, Looks I will be first to post my gourd.
I bought this gourd, cut the top off! Boy are they hard! Then I found a pretty picture of an angel, and glued 4 of them around the bowl. Then I sprayed it with clear laquer, and made it into a candle holder. Pretty easy, but that is all I could figure out to do!

I have a bunch of seeds if anyone would like some send me a c mail!
