Decorated Gourds

2 Decorated Gourds

Every November my garden club makes some type of arrangement for the Skilled Nursing Facility in our county. Last year we made this arrangement. This year we decorated a variety of orange, white, and multicolor miniature gourdes. We had raffia, silk leaves, cinnamon, miniature pine cones, and a variety of dried plant material. We used hot glue to attach the dried material to the gourds.

    What a good idea–and so nice to do this for the nursing home!

  3. What a great idea! They make gorgeous centrepieces for weddings too. Do you need to prepare the gourds in some way before decorating, and how long do these last?
