People Gourds are the Perfect Size for Holiday Gifts and Decorations!

People Gourd shapes make them a fun and unique choice of gourds to create holiday decor such as ornaments, or candle holders, like the one shown left!

Pictured left, a People Gourd turned into a beautiful holiday candle holder by Sammie Crawford. You can find this pattern on her web site,!

When you order a box of Standard Quality People Gourds today, you will get a FREE $20.00 gift! Click here for more information.

You can also use them to make fun gifts, like the ones shown below with Phoebe Welburn!



A hybrid of the chili gourd or banana gourd, these larger "People Gourds" are so-named because they are so popular for making figurines and sculptures!

Their tall canvas makes them ideal for vertical designs, like the art piece pictured left with a cascading heart pattern by Dianne Connelly!

People gourds have a slight point at the bottom, so you will want to sand them on a belt sander to get them to sit flat. You can use a small metal gourd stand to keep them straight, or you can even make your own stand from another gourd!

Pictured right, Dianne sanded the bottom of her art piece and glued it to her own base. 10 various sized Craft-Ready Gourd Rings come FREE with your purchase of People Gourds, so you can skip the mess!

NEW Fili-Point Burr"The [Fili-Point] burr is awesome! The cutting action is powerful and so smooth, like cutting through butter, so it leaves a clean edge - this means less sanding for me (always a good thing!).  From tiny filigree holes to larger cut-outs, this burr easily does it all!"

"I love that I can just plunge it right into the gourd and it doesn't grab. Because of it's size it fits into tiny corners, so I can cut really intricate shapes."  

- Mary Gehley

We named this burr the"Fili-Point" burr because it is designed specifically for creating micro-filigree and large filigree. It is also strong enough to cut through Welburn's famous thick shelled gourds, so you can make intricate cuts, and your own gourd cut-outs!

The Fili-Point burr has a grit coarse enough to cut through thick shells with ease, yet fine enough to leave a nice, smooth finish on the cut line!

The Fili-Point burr is the most popular burr sold by Welburn Gourd Farm. Click on the button below to get your Fili-Point Burr today!
