Here is the process of making Gourdo.
I love gourds each one is unique.
The process of getting to the dried gourd can take almost a year.
The most tedious is cleaning the mouldy skin off and getting to the "wood".
Once that it is done the crafting begins.
I use the stem from the gourd to make the nose.
I loved making this centre piece for a special lady. I also loive paper crafting so putting the two things together was so much fun.
