These 5 rounded gourds are great for painting ornaments or crafting whatever your imagination dreams up! Also great for primitive rustic bowl filler. They are from my own organically grown harvest. They range approximately 2 1/4" to 2 3/4" across, 2 1/2" - 3" tall not including stems. Gourds are not cleaned, but are easily cleaned of their outer markings for painting (see instructions below.) All my gourds are insecticide free. What will you do with them?

To clean gourd shell: Put gourds in a bowl of water for a minute or two- hot or at least warm water loosens the outer skin more quickly than room temp. Adding a cap-full of bleach is optional. You may want to weigh them down with a plate. Use a metal scrubby and gently rub in a circular motion until they are clean. Rubbing too hard may create scratches. Rinse, let dry and you're all set.

For attaching hangers, remove stem, drill a small hole in top and screw in a tiny eye bolt.

TIP: After cleaning, sand the shell with 400 or 600 grit sandpaper for a glassy smooth finish- if you choose to paint them, the paint will glide on beautifully!
