Planter Gourd Art hanging plant flower holder vase green varnished homegrown home decor decorative hand painted air fern
Beautiful planter or vase for a silk flower or plant, made from a hardened gourd top.
I grow all my own gourds here in Lapeer Michigan and once they are cured and dried, then cleaned, the gourd helps me decide what it wants to be. I consider the gourds a unique gift from nature, as no two ever are alike!
I used the top of a gourd that had been cut for a bowl. I used many colors of alcohol ink and then added 3 coats of a non-yellowing varnish to keep the design nice. I added twine for the hanger and a nice lush air fern which needs no care and no green thumb!!!
The gourd measures about 6" including stem. Total length from top of the string to gourd stem is about 27". The opening is about 2" diameter.
**If a gourd gets "re-wet" and stays wet, it could eventually turn to mush so I do not recommend using soil or water but you could if you line it first with thick plastic or a floral water tube. Otherwise, a silk or rubber (faux) plant works great.
To clean, you may wipe it or dust with a dry cloth.
Please contact me with any questions. I do combine shipping - you may contact me if you'd like a quote. Gourds are pretty light but a little bulky. I use great care with packaging and shipping and always include tracking information.
