Pumpkin Gourds And Indian Corn WreathMonday, November 23, 2009
Last month, we took the boys to the Alabama Gourd Festival in Cullman before seeing the new sculpture at Ave Maria Grotto. I was really excited about going to the gourd show this year, because our friend Wade Wharton (who has the great art environment in Huntsville) let us know that he entered and won in the toy category!
It's too late in the season now to make one, but all it is is just several ears of Indian corn cut in thirds, a hole drilled through the middle of each, and a wire frame inserted through the hole in each corn section. Definitely going to make a couple of these next year for friends!
