Gourd Luminary

While attending the Bedford "Weaving Your Cares Behind" convention I won a kit from  Coastal Pine Creations.   Dory Maier and Dianne Masi provided a spiral copper base, a cut gourd and supplies in the kit.

I painted the gourd a blended brown and gold color. Using waxed linen I woven a loose  design to fill the open cutouts.  A pine needle rim was attached to with natural cane. 

A small vase with a flameless candle was
inserted into the base of the gourd
