This gourd DIY craft kit makes two gourd penguins. Our small penguin is approximately 4" in diameter while our Little Penguin is approximately 3" tall. These hard shell gourds come with their exterior cleaned so that they are ready to be painted, stained, wood burned, or crafted in any way that you see fit. They have pre-drilled holes so that they are ready to be assembled with the included parts to make your perfect penguin craft. Our pictures show examples of finished craft kits but you will receive the craft kits unfinished in a box with all the pieces required to make your very own penguin design. Below you will find a list of the parts that will be included with your kit.

Crafting with Gourds:
Crafting with hard shell gourds is similar to crafting with wood. Any paints or dyes that work well on wood will work on your gourd craft.
Because this design is crafted using a natural gourd, each piece is ever so slightly different to make for a unique artisan piece with natural variance in color and size.
Gourds, like wood, are flammable. Please keep away from an open flame.
