I have a bunch of birdhouse gourds and need some gourd project ideas? Thanks!
there is a great gourd forum - check it out
All I have ever done with gourds is paint them. I'll post a couple pics for you to see. I also have a snowman and have started a Santa but never finished him yet.
I've seen some great looking birdhouses made from them too.
I didn't know we had a gourd forum on here, will have to check that out sometime too. Luvs
I love the Ann/Andy gourds.
Have you done a google image search? THere are tons of ideas there.
You can check my website to see if you see anything that you would like to do.
Sandra, you do beautiful work, very professional. TFS Luvs
Luvs, Ann and Andy-- TOO CUTE. I really wouldn't have expected those to be gourds.
I occasionally paint a gourd or two. Mine usually look like houses, but I've done a few banks, too, sometimes combining the two.
This is one of the beach house our friends have in FL. It commemorates our first vacation there with them. There's a hidden door where the flamingo is. There's a wire glued to the inside of the door that has a loop on the end. The loop fits thru a small slot on the opposite side of the gourd and locking it in place is a miniature green hose coiled up.
This next one is a bank. In between the luna moths is a door that pops out. A piece of grapevine locks it closed.
Flamingo, those are really great. What creative ways to disguise the doors. Great work. Luvs
Been off the computer for awhile ( only way to get my yard work done) sure am glad I didnt miss this post, luvs, your grouds are sooo cute! what a beautiful job you have done.
Sandra, I so love your red bowel, you have some real beautiful grouds on your site, the name says it all!
