Create your own masterpiece, gourd Jack O Lantern with this kit. Comes with a 8″ – 9″ diameter dried kettle gourd, a rubber base, and a light cord w/bulb (6′ cord w/on-off switch). You draw your design, cut it out with tools, and finish as you wish. (Paint and/or dyes not included). In a very short time you can create a gourd jack-o-lantern that will last for many years.
A light base is a must for making gourd luminaries. The base helps stabilize the gourd, so it won't tip like it sometimes will by putting the light directly into the side of the gourd. Just use a hole saw to drill a 2-1/2″ hole in the bottom and insert the light base. It can be glued into the gourd with wood glue if desired. Paintable using any water based paint. Easy to clip light cord into base, slot on side allows for cord to be inserted and held in place.
Also great to use as a base for gourds that do not sit flat.
