In the meantime I've got a super simple craft to share. Besides your imagination only three items are required:
1. Permanent Markers (Bic Mark-its work great)
2. Rub-on Shoe Polish
3. Clean, Dried Gourd
And only three steps:
1. Use the markers to "beautify" the gourd
2. Rub and buff with shoe polish to give an aged, but glowing, appearance
3. Display your creation!
