Hi Everyone and hope you are having a great Sunday!
I want to show you an early Christmas Project I am working on.....Painted Gourds.
No, I did not grow the gourds....I bought them! However I have grown some in Florida, but they are hard to dry here, and they usually mildew badly, so I purchased these nice and clean ones.
Our church is having a Holiday Bazaar on November 19, and I will be renting a table, showing my paintings, but thought I would add some whimsical stuff to tempt the buyers!
The shape of this gourd meant that I just had to make an elf out of it!
This snowman doesn't have a big round head, but he is cute anyway! I fashioned the nose from "Sculpey" the clay that you form and bake in the oven. His hat is a child's sock with a big bell on the end!
