Good Questions: Using Gourds for Holiday Decor?

Pin it button big

Dear AT, I have a huge bowl full of leftover gourds from Thanksgiving. They're in great shape and I don't want to throw them out. How can I make them Christmas-y? I was considering painting them silver and gold. But I thought this might be a good question for the site. Do you have any ideas? Maybe I'll try painting them and send you before/after pics.

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the ATLA team or our readers can help you out.

We've seen several hand decorated Christmas themed gourds, but think painting them in silver or gold sounds wonderful. Have any other readers out there used gourds in their winter holiday decorations?
