Meet Fraser, the Christmas Elf! This unique gourd art is a very happy elf decoration. It is handmade, using a real dried gourd! This whimsical gourd will help you create a festive table centerpiece. Fraser the Elf comes with a battery-operated candle to light up your Christmas display. He also makes a super unique Christmas gift!
It may be surprising to know that "Fraser the elf" began as a seedling on a farm, grown in the United States. To make these Christmas elf decorations I first cut the tops off of dried gourds. I clean out the middle and carve the faces and snowflakes just as you would a fresh jack-o-lantern. Translucent paints and waxing show off the gorgeous shell of the gourd which feels wonderfully smooth to the touch. I like to dress my Christmas elves in style, so I channel my inner Madd Hatter and create adorable holiday elf hats incorporating the gourd tops. These festive hats are decorated with all the iconic elements of Christmas. Sprigs of pine, berries, cinnamon sticks, and jingle bells adorn their hats. Full of gorgeous holiday colors and textures, the hats reflect the personality of each gourd. Fraser's hat is covered in Christmas greenery to look like a miniature Christmas tree, with a rich brown faux fur trim on the bottom! It has happy jingle bells and miniature silver Christmas ornaments. Fraser takes Christmas cheer to a whole new level!
Each elf gourd is truly unique, with its own name (burned onto the back) and a festive personality. I leave the inside unpainted because I think it's important to not forget this Christmas elf is not made of plastic, but a real natural vegetable!
Light them up! It's wonderful to have these gourd elves twinkle with golden candlelight in your home at Christmas! However, walking around your house, and turning on all the lights of your Christmas decorations can be rather labor-intensive. So I include a battery-operated tealight candle with a timer! Turn on the timer setting around dusk. It stays on for about six hours, and turns off on its own! It's so wonderful when the elves 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.
