I love making birdhouses out of gourds. If you are artistic you can paint anything you want on them
This is one I drilled a hole by using a hole attachment to my drill
Then I painted it yellow and speckled it black. I also drilled a tiny hole and glued a wooden dowel as a perch. I then drilled 2 holes in the top and hung it with wire
This is one that the perch is made out of a twig branchThis one does not have a perch or hole, I installed it on a bamboo stick and just stuck it in the yard. It really looks cute just sitting there especially during the fall & winter months. It sits about 4 feet tall. I like to leave the long stem on them, it gives them character!
This one has large holes on each side with wooden perches and is made into a feeder. You put bird seed inside and the birds sit on the perches and eat
I again want to thank Patty at Attic Full of Clutter for sending me these beautiful gourds. Be sure to check out her blog at Attic Full of Clutter or visit her webpage where she sells these beautiful gourds at my.atticfullofclutter.com She grows lovely gourds and sells them at great prices too!
I am off to my craft room to paint these new gourds!
