Gourds of all shapes and sizes can be painted to create unique decorations. This guide is about painted Halloween gourds.
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.
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.

Too cute. We always make birdhouses with our gourds. I wish I had saved a few. I will next year!
How do you make the whitewash? Love these!
