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

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.
