FREE Apple Gourd Project!
Contributed by Regina Ward via her Facebook Post

We love this fun Apple Gourd project by Regina Ward! Regina graciously offered others to use her design 😊. Here's what she said in her post:

"Had some fun yesterday with this apple gourd. It's a gift for a family member's birthday coming up. These are really simple to make with the Welburn ink dyes and attached to a 3" wood base. They would be great to personalize with a name and gifted to a special person. 😊😊😊😊 EVERYONE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THIS DESIGN AND SHARE WITH ALL YOUR TEACHERS EVERYWHERE.

Thank you, Regina, for sharing this lovely project on Facebook!
