I paint a lot of Santa / Snowmen / Penguin / Santa / Gingerbread men / Santa / Flamingo / Santa gourd Christmas ornaments. Did I mention Santa? I paint a lot of Santa gourds.
I’m always looking for something cute and fun to make out of gourds, that isn’t Santa. I decided to make this squat ornamental gourd into a cute little bird.
This pink gourd bird ornament is made with scrapbook paper, acrylics, and paper clay on a small ornamental gourd.
She is so sweet, I want to sculpt a nest for her. And bunches of bird friends… I can also make her into an ornament, so I can’t decide now if she should be sitting or hanging.
Wouldn’t she be sweet on a all bird, or all pink Christmas tree? Of course, gourds don’t all have to be Christmas ornaments, she can hang out year round.
