It's henna "inspired" I actually wood burned the images in the gourd using a henna art book I have for patterns. I got the idea last Christmas looking at salad servers called "bear claws" they lookes like hands and henna goes on hands and feet. This year I did the gourd.

Love it! I have four gourds drying outside (one sort of.. imploded but I have four left). I poked holes in the bottom of them with a cork borer.. you could probably get them in lab supply catalogs.

I'm definately going to give this a shot, they look GREAT !

I've already ordered some purple martin gourd seeds  for this upcoming season , can't WAIT!!  Cheesy

i've always wanted to do this, how long do the goards have to dry? how do you know if they are done? is it when they ''rattle"?

I let mine sit a year. But, yes I would assume when they rattle they are ready.

I poked holes in the bottom and let them sit for six to eight months. That my vary depending on the size and type of the gourd.

I've got four that are dry, one 'imploded' Sad

Wow, thats a long time Shocked, do they need to hang, or be stored at a certain temperature? Did you have any trouble w/ rotting?
