There are many different techniques involved in gourd crafting such as sanding, carving, burning, decorating and polishing. Gourd crafting may be the perfect way for you to get creative and fashionable accessories. So welcome to our gourd world. You’ll need is a dried gourd, a dust mask, a pencil, a belt sander, course sandpaper, Mod Podge, a paintbrush and shoe polish. If you don`t have a pre-cleaned gourd, you will have to soak your gourd in water for 15-20 minutes and scrub off the dirt with soap and a wire pot scrubber. And let it dry completely. Then trace two lines around the outside of the gourd in size of your wrist. Wear a mask and cut off the bracelet. Using a belt sander, make the sides of your bracelet even and smooth. Remove any left-over membrane from the inside of the bracelet with course sandpaper. Then coat the inside of the bracelet with Mod Podge. And at last sketch out some designs on your bracelet. Ta-da! Gourds have creatively transformed from ordinary objects into exclusive handmade jewelry!
