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.*Diameter is measured straight across at the widest point.

Each Mini Vase is completely cleaned inside and out, and sanded on the bottom to make it stand flat. The rim is also cut straight and 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!

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 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.
