Gourd Basket by Susan Ebel
Get a great price when you purchase 'Bargain Quality' Craft-Ready Gourd Baskets! These gourds may have one or two small flaws, such as an off-center cut, extra dark markings, or other shell blemishes, so they could not qualify to be sold as a regular 'high quality' baskets, however they are still great quality gourds and they sell out fast!
Each gourd is carefully hand-selected for shape, then cut into a basket and completely cleaned on the entire inside, then sanded on the bottom, if necessary, so they sit flat. We also make sure each basket is made from an extra thick-shelled gourd, which means the handles will be sturdy and not break.
Gourd Baskets may cost a bit more since they are made from specially-selected gourds and more time is needed to cut and clean them, but they are worth it! Use them as a beautiful display on your counter with dried floral arrangements, or use them as a gift basket filled with your choice of goodies!
Available in 3 Sizes:
Small: Approx. 5" - 6.9" in diameter*

Please Note: Gourds are often referred to as 5" or 6" or 7" etc., but they are will be bigger because of how we price them. For example, a gourd that passes THROUGH the 7-inch ring on our sizing board is priced and referred to as a "6-inch gourd," even though it could be as big as 6.9 inches. Click on the "How Gourds Are Priced" tab above to see how we price our gourds.
These beautiful Pre-Cut "Gourd Baskets" only come along once or twice each year, and they sell out fast!
