Spooky Gourds

Jack-o-lantern Gourds

My almost three-year-old son refers to Jack-o-lanterns as "scary pumpkins"- he loves them! So instead of trying to name these gourds I painted something clever like gourd-o-lanterns, or jack-o-gourds, we are going to call them Spooky Gourds!

My in-laws grew about twenty of these gourds when they lived in California years ago.  My husband volunteered to take some off their hands while helping clean out their garage.  I finally figured out a good use for them!

  1. Those are great! I'm surprised that gourds don't get rotten. Weird.
