Here it Southwestern beaded gourd

Sorry everyone.....I've been a bad bad blogger :-(

I had completed this gourd a week ago but just didn't get an opportunity to update an entry here with some pics. I really like how this birdhouse came out and it was fun to create.

I hand strung the beads in and out of small holes that I drilled around the entrance hole to the house. I then painted a simple wooden vine and leaves to compliment the colors of the beads.

A touch of raffia on the hanger...

This is the center back of the gourd in this picture.

Just a closer view of the painted vines and leaves.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm working on a pumpkin face next. Fall is just around the corner!!!!
