This gourd DIY craft kit makes two gourd Scarecrows. Our small Scarecrow is approximately 4" in diameter and approximately 7" tall while our Little Scarecrow is approximately 3" tall. These hard shell gourds come with their exterior cleaned so that they are ready to be painted, stained, wood burned, or crafted in any way that you see fit. They have pre-drilled holes so that they are ready to be assembled with the included parts to make your perfect witch craft. Our pictures show examples of finished craft kits but you will receive the craft kits unfinished in a box with all the pieces required to make your very own witch design.

Instructions for crafting
This kit does not include paint.
Crafting with Gourds:
Crafting with hard shell gourds is similar to crafting with wood. Any paints or dyes that work well on wood will work on your gourd craft.
Because this design is crafted using a natural gourd, each piece is ever so slightly different to make for a unique artisan piece with natural variance in color and size.
Gourds, like wood, are flammable. Please keep away from an open flame.
