Sometimes you come across a decorative gourd that is crying out to be a kiwi bird. If this happens to you, grab some googly eyes, feathers and have fun!
By Andrea Mulder-Slater
What You Need:
a decorative gourd
magic markers (optional)
What You Do:
Set the gourd up so it looks like a bird with a very long beak. Add googly eyes, feathers etc., until the gourd takes on the appearance of a kiwi bird. Continue to embellish with markers or whatever you have on hand. Display your sculpture proudly. It’s just that simple.
