Oh my gosh! h my gosh! I have these gourds! What a great project for fall/FUN! Fairy Garden Gourd-Shaped Fairy Home - I would love to try making something like this with a fake pumpkin when the fall decorations come out.
This country birdhouse is made from 2 gourds and a few gourd pieces. The house is an apple gourd that has been carved in a "stone" pattern. The roof is made from a second gourd, covered with pine cone "shingles".
