Click on the image to see the full picture! — For this fruit basket, I cut “holes” out of the sides and layed it down on its side. I put a “foot” on it with apoxy to add stability. I decoupaged the inside with gold shiny tissue paper and thanksgiving themed napkins… I cut out each apple, pear and group of berries… first set down a layer of gold tissue paper… then added the fruit… I also added the apoxy under the “handle” because the gourd was too thin the handle could easily break… I just stuck it to the gourd like clay! Then painted the under side of the handle metallic gold… finally added a couple of beads to cover where the gourd stem was. This was a fun project!
