Gourd Masks designs by Paul B. and Karen Wilson and gourd shakers, Wilsons Gourds 2011 – It took us nine years, but we finally made some gourd masks this year. Paul B. Wilson made the woodburned and stained mask in the photo and Karen Wilson made the acrylic painted with gourd seeds for eyes and pine cone pieces for eyebrows masks. Both masks have leaf headdresses. They turned out beautiful and we enjoyed making them. Our music shakers were of a flower, scarecrow, pumpkin, and fish from the makanda gourds. We added seed corn to make them really fun to use. We enjoyed Halloween 2011.
