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.

The gourd snowman ornament would look adorable in the center of this unique, rustic display!
Click here for the tutorial on how to craft this snowflake wreath. The instructions are for a much smaller decoration, but you can always make it larger to fit any door or space.

On December 2nd, 3rd, 9th, and 10th, visit the Meadowbrooke Gourds Retail Store as part of our Winter Open House to create your own Santa, Snowman or Angel gourd! This is a great event for the family as all ages and artistic skill levels are welcome. Participants will have the opportunity to enter their original gourd in our annual Winter Contest for a chance to appear in our 2013 catalog.
Last year’s winner is Billi Hopple. She created Haven, this beautiful angel gourd.
We are looking forward to seeing our customer’s creativity during this year’s contest!
