Decorate Your Holiday Wreath With Gourds

One way to add an interesting touch to your holiday decor is to use gourds as part of  your wreaths.

Our small Angel gourd, Emily, is pictured above attached to the wreath on our Retail Store door. Give the wreath some interest with pinecones and other ornaments.

Any of these gourd ornaments pictured above would make a lovely addition to your wreath!

Picture these little guys on a rustic, snowflake wreath like pictured below.

Or get really creative and craft a wreath in the actual shape of a snowflake:

The gourd snowman ornament would look adorable in the center of this unique, rustic display!
