Gourd Luminary Fall Leaves and Acorns Our whole farm has a peruvian theme, from our alpacas, chickens, and home grown gourds! This luminary was made to look like a traditional peruvian lantern with leaves and acorns for decoration! It was dried and cleaned,then cut,wood burned and carved. The coloring was made by caft paints and gourd stains. The inside is left natural. Gourds with cutouts make beautiful luminaries! For safety, always use a candle in a glass container or an electric one.
