Pre-Boxed Apple Gourds

Please Note: The photos are meant as a general representation of the shapes of gourds you can expect to receive.

These fun, 5" to 7" diameter*, square-shaped gourds actually grow looking just like an apple! Paint them red, add a leaf design, and you have a perfect, ever-lasting home accent, like the art pieces shown below!. Apple gourds have a shell that is more dense than most gourds, which means they are extremely durable, plus they will polish to a higher sheen.

This fun Schoolhouse Apple Gourd is by Diane Wilson Kemp! She posted for sale in the Gourd Art Marketplace here. It has a rose vine growing around the door and the ruler shutter around the window with three books showing through. A worm hole at the top with a graduating worm peaking out. A lovely example of creativity using an Apple Gourd!

Pictured left is a carved Apple Gourd by Kelsey Nelson. The shell was colored using Apple Red Ink Dye and the filigree holes were carved with the GourdMaster™ Fili-Point Burr!

The art piece was then accented with a Beech Leaf cut-out and colored with Forest Green Transparent Acrylic.

Apple Gourds are dense, which means the shell is harder than other gourd shapes, and carving with a Fili-Point burr might take a bit longer.

Cut the top off to create a fun container for potpourri, candy, or other items!

Pictured above is a festive lidded Apple Gourd bowl by Kelsey Nelson. The cut was made with the Mini Super Jigsaw, and the leaves were woodburned using designs from the Multiples: Oak and Maple Leaves Stick 'n Burn pack. The leaves were colored with Classic Yellow, Classic Green and Deep Orange GourdMaster™ Ink Dyes.

Watch "How to Attach a Replacment Gourd Stem" Below!

Sometimes you might get a gourd that doesn't have a stem, but you can fix that by simply attaching a replacement gourd stem! Just watch the video above to see how easy it is!

Pre-Boxed Apple gourds come clean so you can get right to the fun of crafting your gourds when you open the box!

Size: 5"- 7.9" in diameter. They are sold in a box of 7.

Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Most of the "Pre-Boxed Clean Gourds" are sorted by the following sizes:

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

Large Size: Approx. 9"-10.9" in Diameter*
Medium Size: Approx. 7"-8.9" in Diameter*
Small Size: Approx. 5"-6.9" in Diameter*
Mixed Sizes: Approx. 5"-10.9" in Diameter*

Please see the size references in the photos below!

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the size shown on the sizing board because there is a range from one size hole to the next. For example, a gourd that sits on the 9-inch ring and passes through the 10-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 9-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 9.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds.
