OH GOURD, IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR!
1.) for a unique twist on the traditional pumpkin, carve shapes like circles, zig-zags or other designs in several gourds and place them by your front door with battery operated tea lights inside (so they don't burn and last a lot longer)
2.) Go nuts and spray paint them fun colors, using them as a centerpiece on your festive table.
3.) Hallow them out completely and fill them with candy
4.) Using smaller gourds, pop little holes in the top and punch holes in the sides with an icepick. Insert Christmas lights through the hole in the top and string outside for a whimsy autumn design
