Jack got down the gourds that my grandfather gave me 25+ years ago.
I knew I wanted to make birdhouses out of them someday but I kept forgetting about them.
They were quite dried out which is a good thing and they were full of seeds I can plant. Seeds do not expire lol. A ziplock bag of seeds out of each gourd.
These two are for our yard.
I have the third one primed for my sister Sheri who can paint it like she wants it painted.
I wanted these painted using the same technique but using different colors. I used metallic paints and then a coat of Marine Spar for protection and shine. The hole saw for the hole and the drill for the top holes for hanging.
The yellow and green one got rained on since it was already in a tree in the backyard. The blue ones home is being determined but I think it will go in the front yard.
Thank You to my grandfather ( Daddy Dub ) for my gourds even though it has taken me many years to get my project done.
They are beautiful! Hope the birds love them!
Than you Dawn I hope they like them better than our other ones that are wooden lol.
Those are lucky birds to have such a beautiful house.
