These Craft-Ready Mini Vases are the perfect size for small projects and gifts and can be used for everything from pencil holders to flower vases. Perfect for DIY gifts!
Each Mini Vase is completely cleaned inside and out, and sanded on the bottom to make it stand flat. The rim is sanded for a smooth, even look. All of the hard work is done for you so all you have to do is the fun part of designing and coloring. It's the perfect solution for quick and easy gourd gifts or class projects!
These Mini Vases are made from our high quality bottle gourds and are selected specifically to have minimal shell blemishes and no cracks. Our gourds are known for their lovely, natural markings. These are NOT considered shell blemishes but are part of the natural beauty of the gourd.
Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board
Mini Vases average 3"-5.9" in diameter and 3.75"-8" tall.
*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. Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

We love this Create mini vase also made by Mary Gehley. This is a wonderful idea for teachers and kids!
Because gourds are a natural product, these may have a slightly asymmetrical shape, or shell blemishes in an inconspicuous area, but they are still fabulous gourds!
*For Pre-Boxed gourds, refunds are given on the entire box, not individual gourds. Sorry, we cannot refund individual gourds from a Pre-boxed group because the price reduction offered on these boxes (as compared to Custom Order gourds) is based on the group of gourds as a whole.
Please note: Photos are meant to be a general representation of the gourds you will be receiving.
