Pattern Description:

YOU WILL GET: Step-by-step photos and instructions on how to make a painted gourd birdhouse using one shaped sponge. 11-page PDF file.

I believe art is a way to be creative and express yourself and the dried gourd is a canvas with nearly endless possibilities. I am a gourd artist who loves to inspire and motivate others to see the huge potential a gourd has in the field of art. This particular tutorial is geared toward children and tweens.

In this 11-page tutorial with step-by-step color photos I will show you how to make a gourd birdhouse painted with decorations made with a single shape. The single shape is both a challenge and a way to get those creative juices flowing.

This is a fun project for the whole family! Just right for those rainy days, parent and child quality time, or even in a group or classroom setting. It's a perfect beginner project to bring out the creative artist in your child.
