Having a leftover supply of dried gourds from the last few years’ crops I was looking for a new craft idea.
I also needed evening lights for the backyard so it was time to look for a crafting luminary project.
The following your tube has a luminary gourd project.
One tip I never knew was to use mineral oil to help make the gourd more water resistant. It is important to have a gourd waterproof and weather protected. I usually did it with a water sealer. I think I will have to try the mineral oil to see how it works.
Gourds have always been a favorite garden crop of mine. They have their own garden as they tend to grow too much and take over areas, even when growing them using vertical growing methods. And this year being warm will be a great gourd season in my short growing climate.
