How to Make Your Own Pac-Man-Carved Pumpkins

DIY Geeky Pac-Man-Carved Pumpkins

The hardest part about making these adorable 8-bit gourds is finding just the right pumpkins to carve! Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories the creators of this Pac-Man-carved creation, suggest finding a bagful of these decorative gourds at the grocery store — try to find one with a curvy base and a rounded one with a flat base.

And now that you've got the perfect pumpkins, here's how you should carve your pumpkins:

Gourds like these have a hard shell, about 3mm thick, that is rather hard to cut through. We used a loose drill bit (turned by hand) to make the initial cut. From there, a regular hobby knife (e.g., X-acto) works well. Once the soft flesh and seeds are scooped out, the hard shell can dry to make a semipermanent display.
