I haven't been crafting much of late but I was inspired to give this a go today. I bought the gourds a couple of years ago and had them in a big wooden bowl. I wanted to be able to see their lovely shapes more so I strung them on a rusty wire with some cinnamon sticks and pine cones. Thanks Ian for drilling the holes! Looks and smells great above my kitchen window, very prim..... I have some gourd seedlings coming up in punnets at the moment. Bit too early to plant them out, don't want to get them frost-bitten, but it won't be long before they are rambling all over the place. It will be exciting to see what type they are as I bought a mix of heirloom seeds. Once they are picked it will take a while for them to dry out enough to use for craft, but when they do - look out!
