Sharing a couple new ideas I came up with for playing with gourds!

This one - my totally cool jack-o-lantern face - could also be drawn onto a fresh pumpkin! Just use sharpies and set aside a little quiet time to doodle to your heart's content.

Even fresh gourds in weird shapes are good candidates! Think about it!
