Last week I wrote about trying to come up with an idea for what to do with all my dried gourds from last year. While thinking about it, I remembered this gourd bird house hanger in one of my favorite decorating books, Seasons at Seven Gates Farm (which I also wrote about not that long ago…I guess it’s on my brain!) and I knew that this would be the perfect project!
The piece will look beautiful in the middle of my veggie and herb bed, an it wont require a lot of work with the gourds, just putting a hole in for the birdies to get into. I think the wooden hanger will be good too since we have a curious little kitty who can now climb the fence and our little trees with ease.
I was talking to my mom about making this since my parents live on much more wooded land where I might be able to find some thick branches like the ones needed to make the stand and she told me that she had made this project as well, back in the 90s. I don’t know why I don’t remember it! But I’m looking forward to making my own! Hopefully sometime soon I can go searching through the woods for some pieces to make the stand and then get to work. I can’t wait!
Well, hope you have a good start to your week! And don’t forget— tomorrow Tasha Tuesdays returns!~
