Pac-man Halloween DIY project

Sometimes the classic jack-o-lantern gets a bit dull and you need a bit of a geeky twist. Evil Mad Scientist took two gourds and created these Pac-man style decorations.

Gourds are extremely easy to find during this time of the year but not a lot of people actually use them for creative purposes. The ghost is created from the base of an extremely wrinkly gourd and Pac-man obviously made from a rounder one.

To initially cut through they used a loose drill bit and turned it by hand to make the first cut. Then switched to an x-acto knife. Once all of the gooey innards are scooped out the hard shell can dry to make the gourds a semipermanent decoration.
