These fabulous Craft-Ready "Fancy-Hook" Ornaments are LARGE size ornaments made from Mini gourds. Choose from 2 size options: Large (2.5" to 3.25" in diameter) and Extra Large (3.25" to 4.5" in diameter).

They range in size from 2.5 to 4.5 inches in diameter and come with an eye screw already attached in the perfect spot so they hang beautifully!

Each one includes a fancy, scroll style hook to give it a look of elegance. Please note: The hooks are packaged separately to keep them from getting damaged in shipping; please watch the short video above to see how easy the hooks are to attach!

Craft-Ready gourds like these are great because the hard work has already been done for you and you can get right to the fun of crafting your gourd!

Keep in mind, these Craft-Ready gourds are hand-selected for size and symmetry, so they are gourds that you might not find if you were to order a regular box of cleaned Mini Gourds.

They are perfect for creating large ornaments for a large Christmas tree, or even gorgeous art pieces that can be displayed year-round! (Makes a great gift!)

Use these Large and Extra Large Fancy-Hook Ornaments to
Create Gorgeous Art Pieces That Can be Admired Year-round!

Kelsey colored this gourd with the same techniques as Gloria Crane from the "Coloring a Butterfly", an excerpt from the DVD 'Creating a Butterfly Gourd Ginger Jar".

Gourd art by Christy Barajas using poinsettia designs from the Gourd Ornament Stick n Burn pack and the Fili-Point to create the filigree around the design.

Fancy-Hook Ornaments have really nice shells that have very little markings, so they take color very well. Just look at the Poinsettias and how they stand out against the natural gourd color.

These Poinsettias were colored using True Red Transparent Acrylics and the leaves were coloed using Classic Green Ink Dye.

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.
