Glitter Gourd Ghouls

When I see gourds, I definitely think of fall, so when a friend gave me a bag of odd-shaped miniature gourds, I saw a whimsical Halloween craft. With a little bit of paint and lots of "bling" in the form of glitter, I crafted faux-sugared pumpkins and ghosts.

Tip: Painted Halloween Gourds

By sheri sykes 10 6

Painted Halloween GourdsJack O' Lantern: Cut out leaves from puff paper, you can use color you like best. Wash the gourd good, let dry. Whitewash and let dry, then paint. When dry, spray with sealer.

Pumpkin And Ghost: Wash gourd and let dry about half and hour. Whitewash whole gourd and let dry about half an hour, I do a few at a time because I give them as gifts. Paint pumpkin first, then ghost. These are so cute. Ghost painted on neck of gourd the bottom of which is painted as a Jack O Lantern.
