Craft-Ready Gourd Lamps make it easy for you to make your own beautiful gourd lamp because all the cutting and cleaning has been done for you!

Please note:
Due to the lateness in the year, our top quality gourds have already been sold; the gourds we used to make these Gourd Lamps will have some shell markings and blemishes, and prices have been reduced to reflect this. Gourds are a natural product and each one is different. The photo is meant as a general representation and does not show the exact gourds you will receive.

Each Craft-Ready Gourd Lamp comes with the hole pre-drilled in the bottom to make your gourd fit snugly over the base so light does not seep through. We custom order the included LED bulb, which is very small yet produces extremely bright light, yet still has a tiny heat output so as not to cause fire danger.
 
The gourds are completely cleaned inside and out, and cut on the top so that light can shine upwards as well as through your designs on the body of the gourd.
 
The base provides the lamp with stability and is hidden from view so as not to take away from your beautiful lamp design!

"I have always been pleased with my Welburn orders. I recently ordered the ornament gourds in two different sizes. I had not ordered them before and was happy with them. I have painted six of them and hope to paint more before Christmas. Welburn is my go to for my gourd supplies. Thank you." -Pam Price Reffitt

"I just want to thank everyone down at the Welburn Farm for all your hard work... with the growing, the turning, the harvesting, the cleaning, the packing of orders, the customer service... and so on! Creating gourd art has changed my life and enhanced it in so many ways. Thank you for the work you do, so that artists can have such a wonderful “canvas” to work with! I’ve been a loyal customer since around 2000 and will continue to be. (PS. I love the ornaments!) Happy Holidays to you all!" -Diann
