1. To turn the gourds into bowling pins, spray them with white spray paint. Allow to dry, and then paint an orange stripe around the necks.

2. Add a marbleized, bowling-ball effect to the pumpkin by sponging on black craft paint. Then, add three dots to replicate a bowling ball's finger holes.

3. Set them up in the yard just like at a bowling alley. Tip: This is a great project to complete with kids. They can help paint the gourds and ball, and then have fun bowling.
