Fall scarecrow, Scarecrow gourd hand painted This Scarecrow gourd is my original pattern painted on a dried gourd This gourd measures approximately 10 high by 7 diameter. Since the gourd is dried it will not rot and can last a lifetime with proper care and storage. I have spray sealed the paint. This gourd is for indoor use only. The gourds I carefully select from an Amish farm where they are grown and professionally cleaned and dried.
