Last week my neighbor on Pippin Lane showed me how to burn and decorate gourds. It was so fun. We started with a dried gourd. You can cut off the top, cut holes in the sides, or leave it whole.
Here is my neighbor cutting her top off.
It was all dry and webby inside. She had to wear a mask to scrape out the inside and sand it smooth.
Here are the scrappers. That is a technical term by the way. 😉
Here is the burner. So fun to burn!
Here is my gourd burned.
We then painted them with acrylic paint. Here is mine drying upside down.
What have you been up to this week?
