John Keats called fall the season of mellow fruitfulness, a sentiment evoked by this string of warm-colored gourds. To make one, you will need miniature gourds, a drill with a fine bit, and twine. Drill a hole through the center of each gourd. Thread twine through an embroidery needle; run it through the holes, knotting it at both sides of each gourd to secure in place. We left 6 inches between gourds. Hang garland from tacks or nails, indoors or outside.
