Cheri Cottrell is a watercolor illustrator who lives on the coast of Maine. I stumbled across her blog where she shares her art and wonderful tutorials. She created this tutorial that teaches how to make halloween gourds. And they are beautiful! You will find a list of things on her blog that you'll need to collect before getting started. The instructions are clear and come with step by step pictures that are so helpful.
This is a fun project to make this halloween. These gourds will be perfect to hang with decorations, candle or treats. This link will take to a page where you will find tutorials on how to dry a gourd, clean and paint a gourd.
