You probably could use it for the yarn bowl. You may need to sand the inside to make it smoother, then spray it good to finish it. They tend to be a bit rough on the inside. That's a good idea, I may have to work that out. I have a nice round gourd that I need to do something with...  Grin

I always had a soft spot for gourds, I grew some ornamental ones once, never thought to decorate them though, what a lovely idea.

These are so neat. I love the bird house. I had no idea it took so long for them to dry out.

I've alwys wanted to try something like this with gourds. I think the Lizard Stick the best though.

I did make a yarn bowl for a swap, we will have to see what she thinks about how it works. I cut a lid out of a nice round gourd. I drilled a hole in the top for the yarn. Then I drilled holes in the sides one on the lid and one below ( in two places on opposite sides of the gourd) I threaded those through with yarn and tied it. So, you can put your ball of yarn inside, thread the yarn out of the hole and then tie it shut. Hopefullly it works, if not it will still work as a container.  Grin
