Gourds on a cord

Suspend a group of gourds on a cord (we used bicolor spoon gourds) from tree branches and watch them dance in the breeze.

Here's how: Use a drill with small bit (ours was 1/8 inch) to make a hole at bottom of the neck, drilling all the way through. Repeat with desired number of gourds. Put a cord through one and double-knot the string on either side of the hole to secure. Repeat with rest of gourds.
