Things you’ll need:
Miniature gourds
Masking tape

Things to do:
1. Using your masking tape, mask off either the top of bottom half of each gourd, making sure you smooth them down well in the crevices and that you maintain a straight line all the way around.

2. Mask off the rest of the gourd on the side you don’t want painted.
3. In a well-ventilated work area and on a covered surface. Lightly spray the exposed areas of the gourds with two coats of paint, allowing each to dry before adding the next.

6. Write your names on the cards and insert into the slit.
