Birdhouse Gourd

Gourds can be a fun addition to any garden. I’ve discovered they look pretty cool if you stain them:

1.) Wait till the gourd is fully grown, pick it, and hang it up to dry for a few weeks.

2.) When the gourd has fully dried out, lightly sand the outside with a smooth piece of sand paper.

3.) Paint on your favorite stain (I like cherry), and allow it to dry.

4.) You can optionally add a  clear coat layer when the stain is dry.

When it is dry, the gourd will look like a really old antique globe.
