Birdhouse Photo, posted 2012-12-17

This birdhouse Christmas tree ornament is made of a carved and decorated gourd.  The Kemper Center at the Missouri Botanical Garden has a 12′ Christmas tree with nearly all of the ornaments made from decorated gourds, some modified or carved like this one, others used without any changes other than painting and decorating.
