Hello! I am excited to present my first instructable, the Gourd Luminary!  To make one of these, you will need the following:

One hardshell gourd
Drill
Electric saw
Pencil
Sandpaper
Woodburner
20 ga. beading wire
C7 light cord
Hole saw
Wood glue
A little imagination!

Optional:
Wood stain or paint

Step 1: Step One: Gourd Selection and Preparation

Choose a firm, heavy-feeling gourd to work with. If the shell is too thin, the gourd is likely to crack as you work with it. If the gourd is dirty and/or still has the outer cuticle attached to it, wash it in hot soapy water. A steel pot scrubber will help remove dirt and debris. Allow the gourd to dry.
"Feel free to go crazy...try to stay within your limits". Which is it?
