What Kind of Art Can You Make With Dried Gourds?

Make dried gourds into beautiful works of art simply by painting them. Choose colors that express a theme, a season or whatever is pleasing with your look.

After cleaning and lightly sanding the gourds, use white primer first and let them dry overnight. Spray paint is easy to apply; do one section and let it dry for several hours before turning the gourd and spraying another area. When completely covered with paint, let the gourds dry thoroughly and they are ready to display. Group some together to adorn your table or mantel. Consider adding a glossy finish to make the gourds shine.
