Get your gourds off the ground and present them in a new light as garland.
9 gourds of various colors and shapes
Long heavy-gauge needle
Heavy-gauge fishing line
Six 1-yard-long pieces of ribbon
1. Drive the heavy-gauge needle threaded with heavy-duty fishing line through the gourds, using a hammer to tap it through if there is too much resistance. Leave 6 inches of fishing line at each end.
2. Attach the garland to the wall using nails, and tie three pieces of ribbon to each end of the garland to conceal any exposed fishing line.
