Meet Twig! A whimsical Halloween decoration that is made with a real dried gourd! It's surprising to know that this spooky ghost began as a seedling on a farm! To make Twig, I carve a ghostly facial expression into a dried gourd and clean out the middle. Twig has a cute little face and a few scars that I stitched up myself! Translucent paints and waxing show off the gorgeous shell of the gourd which feels wonderfully smooth to the touch. I create a fun fall arrangement on the top of Twig. I use natural dried botanical berries, little pumpkin pods, acorns, and miniature pinecones. Each decorative gourd is truly unique, with its own personality!

Fun Facts & Tid Bits
-Measurements 5 inches tall and 3.5 inches in diameter.
-I use dried gourds that come from farms grown in the United States.
-I leave the inside unpainted because I think it's important to not forget the true nature of this ghost is a real vegetable; not a piece of plastic.
-Twig includes a battery-operated candle.

Thoughts on my love of battery-operated candles. There's nothing better for your fall tabletop decor than to have lighted whimsical gourds around your home! However, I am lazy. I really don't enjoy walking around my house turning on all the lights, and then having to turn them off at bedtime. So I include a battery-operated candle with a timer. This is the best invention ever! You turn on the timer setting around dusk, then it stays on for about six hours. It will turn off on its own! It's so heartwarming when the gourds just light up as the sun is setting. You don't have to touch it again until the battery runs out and needs to be replaced.

You're invited to visit my gourd family! Here is the link for my collection of carved gourds.

Thank you for visiting the BoutiqueBarn,
Happy Fall Y'all!
