These vases lend a natural look to your fall decor and can last for months. Pumpkins, squashes, and gourds are plentiful during the fall and can be found at your local grocery store, farmer's market, or florist. The simple, graceful lines of the bottle gourd make it perfect for use as a vase.

This gourd is naturally hollow and looks beautifully rustic filled with an autumn assortment of dried buds and berries, such as bittersweet (Celastrus), and Callicarpa americana, commonly known as beauty berries or French mulberry.
