I went to a craft class yesterday where you got to paint a gourd birdhouse. I decided to make one with a dog and cat. Thought I'd share what I made. It's just for fun; I'm not very artistic. This was done using a stencil and then filling more in.

Aww, it's really cute, Barb!

Just think of how funny it would be to do artwork on all the veggies in the garden.. ;) After all, who doesn't need practice, right? :D

The woman who teaches crafts washed & coated the outside of the gourds. We painted with small bottles of patio/craft paints. She told us to coat it again to preserve the paint outdoors but I haven't done that yet.

We were told not to put a perch on it as snakes will go in! No, I don't want snakes.
