More Gourd Ideas

This is an interesting use for a gourd. Its purely decorative. I don't think this one would have any practical use. It would be hard to get berries or nuts or anything out of the smaller rim. But its an interesting decorative idea.

Necessary stuff :
Piercing tool
Gourd of course!
This tutorial
Flat type of plaiting material, ribbon, pandanus leaves, I heard cat tails work, and Haida indians from Alaska used Cedar Bark for a flat plaiting material.
Time
Patience
And good hands.

The instructions for the rest of this project can be found here. Enjoy
