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.

  1. STINKIN' CUTE!!!!!!! Gourdo is the man!!!! To see what you did from a naked gourd to bring this little guy to life, is amazing. The perfectly painted eyes, the hat, the mittens, the scarf and the NOSE .... what an amazing gift. And the base couldn't have been a better choice. I'm sure this a gift that will be treasured forever.
