A great book for simple craft ideas is Gourd Crafts: From Bowls to Birdhouses, 20 great projects...... The pictures are wonderful and the directions are easy to follow, we had a lot of fun making a bird house, and thanks to DavesGarden we located a site to buy really nice clean, dry, gourds to paint and craft with. We found AmishGourds.com had some of the best gourds I've ever worked with.
