Golden Gourds & Canning Jars

Yesterday was the most gorgeous fall day here in Massachusetts, so my Mom and I decided to take my oldest to the pumpkin patch with us to have a look around and get some pumpkins for carving. (My youngest is now sick and had to stay home...this month has been insane with illness here!)
 
Anyway, we got our pumpkins and a whole passel of awesome gourds. My son was in awe over how cool they were with their unique colors, shapes and markings.




 Our gourd haul...
 
 
I have a few projects I want to make with these gourds for Thanksgiving, but I couldn't wait to get started with something super simple right away.

 
It only takes a few supplies...a gourd(s), gold paint (to see my fav brands and colors check out this post), a brush, and vintage canning jars.

 
Simply paint the gourds; be creative! I painted just the bumps on one, the stem on another and the entire body on the third.



This truly combines some of my favorite things (hello, gold + fall + jars). I love rustic items paired with a bit of sparkle!


 
 
Have a great start to your week!
