Gourd Angels

contest winner icon

Pick your gourds, wash in dish soap and bleach, let dry, about an hour. Pick which colors of acrylic paint you want to use on the dress, and skin tone for the face and you are ready to paint. When you are finished painting, set aside and let dry, I always let them dry overnight just to be sure.


The next step is the bow for the wings, choose a ribbon that has wire in it, and is a good color to go with the dress on the angel. Make sure the ribbon is long enough for a double bow. Move the ribbon around until you have it like wings, that you are happy with. Spray with a high gloss sealer. These are beautiful for Christmas or Valentines Day.
