Last fall I bought green apple gourds at a local pumpkin patch to use for Fall decoration. When they began to lose their color and start rotting I threw them in the woods out back. Happily, I found them again this Spring. I soaked the gourds in bleach water, drilled a hole to empy the insides, and now the girls are painting them to make birdhouses. We'll see if birds ends up coming to nest in the gourds, but it's been a fun craft, nonetheless, and they fit the ambiance of our cottage yard.
