Gourd & Pine Needle Ornaments

By Artist Kim Black | Beaver Meadow Arts

For gourd ornaments, I cut gourd pieces and sand them into a round shape about 2 3/4” across. I mark and drill holes to accommodate stitching pine needles to the edge with sinew.  Like my wood ornaments, designs are wood burned and colored with inks and acrylic paints. The hanger is made from sinew.


To see more about each piece, click on any image in this gallery, then click on the ‘i’ icon at the bottom of the page. To hide it, click on it again. If you are looking for something specific, such as an ornament with a cat, click on the ‘select tags’ box and choose ‘cat’ to only display all the ornaments in this gallery with cats.


Like all my designs, each one is unique. When you find something you’d like to purchase, make a note of the item # and use the ‘Contact/Purchase’ link in the main menu above. All ornaments are $7 and shipping is free.
