Paint a Holiday Birdhouse Gourd

Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Draw inspiration from wintry holidays and decorate your own birdhouse gourd on Tuesday, December 7, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Story County Conservation Center (56461 180th Street, Ames).

Birdhouse gourds are not only fun ornaments to add around your home and garden, but can also provide nesting homes for native birds. We’ll provide pre-cut gourds and all needed supplies, you just bring your creativity! Sip hot cocoa while you sand, “gut,” and decorate; gourds may need to be left behind to dry and lacquer and can be picked up the following week. 

This program is best for ages 6 and over. Children must be accompanied by their adult. Please come wearing clothes you don’t mind getting covered in paint. Fee of $7 per gourd is required with online registration by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, December 6.
