Make It, Bake It, Grow It

My large family decided years ago rather than spend tons of money on everyone or draw names, we would do make it, bake it, or grow it Christmas gift. This is my this year's effort (and my Santa's helper, who sanded and primed the gourds, and the cut holes). My sister Jewel grew the gourds. I painted them. They haven't the final coat of polyurethane on yet, but I thought they turned out pretty good. Hopefully, wrens will like them for homes this coming summer. Outdoors I think they should last one or two seasons. By then, Jewel will have grown more gourds (the season is too short where I am), they'll have cured long enough to shed their outer skin and I can then make more birdhouses! Hope everyone liked them as much as I liked painting them.
