Gourd Birdhouse - Apple Style with Roof

$11
Calendar Apr 27, 2024 at 9 am

In this class you will learn about the history and variety of gourds, growing and processing, their many uses, and proper care and maintenance. You will also understand the types of birds that are attracted to gourd birdhouses and where to place them for maximum interest. Then, you will create your own birdhouse! Note: Gourds vary in size, shape, texture, and color.

This birdhouse is comprised of two different gourds. The base of the house will be a single gourd that has been cut and partially prepared. A second gourd will be cut to create a roof. You will select your gourd, drill drainage holes, sand and prep it for use, assemble it, then stain/paint/decorate it, and prepare it for hanging. As part of the process, you can collect the seeds for planting if desired. Select from stencils provided or use your own creativity and artistry to create the perfect birdhouse. Note: A coat of polyurethane will be needed to prepare for outdoor use. This step is not included in class. When properly treated and maintained, your birdhouse can last for 10 years or more.

Gourds make great gifts for Mother’s Day or for that favorite gardener or bird lover in your life. This is a great activity to do with the kids or grandkids!
