It was such an honor to guest post at Rhinestone Beagle for Howl-oween! Did you see all the fun projects?
Here's what I wrote for them!
You may have noticed that I like to decorate gourds! If you haven't seen them, they are on my Crafts Page!
I thought it might be fun to do some just for Halloween! Check out this family photo!
Let me show you how it all began! The gourds are grown, dried, chosen and cleaned. From left to right, Big Apple Gourd, Birdhouse Gourd, Swan Gourd; and in front, Caveman Gourd. Keep in mind that shapes can become distorted depending on growing conditions.
For this project I used spray paint instead of leather dye. Each family member got a different color.
Now for the creativity! My favorite part! Wiggly eyes play a big role!
Family Pet, FiFi
One big, happy, Howl-oween Family! I hope your holidays are filled with laughter!
I like the purple one... "Big Daddy" ...LLOL!

Cute critters that's for sure! There is a lady that sales hand painted gourds at a Fall outdoor show in Midway, UT. She paints them with tons of details and sales them for big bucks. There are people that come to the show every year just to buy one of her gourds. I have always been going to paint some. I use to paint tole painting lessons. But have I done it? NOPE. Yours are fun!ReplyDelete
