On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me … Ten Gourds a Heaping.
I know you’re disappointed. You were thinking, maybe, that I had found some leaping lords.
No such luck.
Not only did I fail to find leaping lords, but I also failed to find actual gourds.
Evidently, you need to gather gourds in the fall.
I could change the theme to …
Hoards I am Keeping.
Boards I am Sweeping.
Or I could substitute gourds …
… for these gourd-like freakishly small fruit.
I went with the fruit.
The rest was easy.
I just happened to have a
hoard, er, good selection of glitter.
Once dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge and generously sprinkle glitter over the Mod Podge.
Be sure to capture the glitter so you can re-use it.
It’s just that easy.
Once the “gourds” have dried, heap them on a pretty dish.
