Is it possible to have Fall without gourds? The answer is simple: no. Although gourds are a Fall essential, their use in Fall decor can become monotonous without creativity. Gourds are one of the earliest crops to be domesticated and it is believed they were first harvested 10,000 years ago!! To say the least, they’ve been around for a long time so displaying them in the same way can get boring. Here’s some refreshing ideas to help you continue the tradition of gourds with creativity, setting a welcoming Fall atmosphere for all to enjoy!
Simple, but refreshing! Use a hammer and nail to pierce a hole through the top of your gourds. Be sure to gather a diverse variety of gourds and string them on a line of twine. Super easy and super cute!
Go for White
Paint your gourds white or cream and pair them with bright orange accents for contrast.
Have a Hoot over something cute!
