    1. Hi April. I am thrilled my tutorial helped you. That’s why I have this website. If I can help someone I want to! Southwestern is one of my favorite themes as well. There is just something about gourds that scream southwest to me! Hum…I lived in Austin for a while. Do you think that had something to do with it!

  3. I new to this Blog thing and also new to gourds. I read your blog on cleaning the outside but not the inside how do you do that.

    1. Welcome to the world of gourds Gary. THere are several ways to clean the inside. I personally use a gourd cleaning ball I bought from the Welburn Gourd farm. This is a Sanding Ball that I attach to my drill and it makes cleaning a breeze! But I clean alot of gourds so for me its a time saver. For someone new you can use a spoon to scrape out as much you can. If you have access to a grinder you might even benefit from sharpening it!! I have also heard that you can put a handful of gravel inside the gourd and shake, rattle and roll alot of the stuff out. Some gourds are super easy to clean and some don’t like to give up their guts so roll up your sleeves, apply a little elbow grease and start scraping.
