Start with getting the small gourds as described above. Though, you will probably only need five of them. The smaller the gourds for this craft the better.
•You will need to soak them four the few hours in warm water also. Then remove the skin with the steel wool. When the gourd is dry and smooth, you are ready for the next step.
•Drill or nail a hole into the neck or stem of each of the small gourds. You will also want to put holes into the other items you want to use on your garland. You can use nuts, fruit, plastic stuff works well.
•Now thread some twine on a needle. String the gourds and other items. Then you can use this as the garland to hang on your door, or add this string of garland to your wreaths.
