I absolutely love gourds. Growing them, drying them, curing them, painting them, just looking at them. Yep, gourds.
DIY: Paisley chickens from gourds! Could also make plaid or polka-dot chickens! Excellent tutorial on creating the paisley design - breaks it down step by step.
I love the carved background of this gourd, the leaves stand out so well - very well done. And the rippled rope rim fits this gourd perfectly. By Cheryl Burns
