About 5 years ago, I was up at Green Bluff here in Spokane, WA, USA at a farm called Knapps.  Its a place where you can U-Pick berries and pumpkins, and has a cool pumpkin cannon.  They also have a bunch of bins of different squashes and gourds, and some dried gourds of different sizes.  I bought a whole bunch of them, and painted up some for myself that sit on my bookshelf.  I had a whole bunch of extras that I've been hording all these years.

I've been dying to make more of these, I just never found the motivation to, until I angeled for the Monster Swap.  I made these for my partner:


Here is the whole bunch!  A vampire, mummy, zombie, and werewolf!  They are painted with regular acrylic paints.









YAY GOURDS!

Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone!

That was the one I was most hesitant about making.  I'm glad it came out right.  ^_^

At first glance, I thought your werewolf was Chewbacca!  Smiley  Imagine it with a bandolier and you'll see what I mean.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Oh for sure!  A set of Star Wars gourds would be so cool, and my hubby would love it!  Great idea, dulcet!  I'm so doing it!  ^_^
