I have done quite a few of these over the years but have no idea where my pics are for them. Just ran across these and thought I would share with y'all.

That's nifty. How do you dry them and get the insides out?

Thank you. Sometimes I do cut an opening for real birds to use as a birdhouse. But most of the time, if I am going to paint it like this, I will not to that. They do not last but a couple of years outside so when I take the time to paint them with a scene, then I varnish them and use them for indoor decor. So, like this one, most do not have actual holes in them.
