DIY Pac-Man Garland

With a little forced help from Penga-sis and Sak, I completed my very first Pinterest project (yes, I have one of those now..):
Isn't the original awesome? I couldn't help but want to try it out, especially since it matches our Halloween invitations!

Using the templates here at, Penga-Sis took to tracing out some shapes.

Then we made a mess.

And then the helpers ditched to go play Little Big Planet, leaving me alone to cut out 96 eyeball pieces.

Gluing the eyes on, now we've got some cute little ghosts!

I taped them to some black ribbon, which is okay since the ghosts are really light weight.

And there we go, semi-painless Halloween decor!

They are so cute I think I will leave them up all October.
And maybe even November...


Anyway, I just want to get it out there that I suck at Pac-Man. Running out of the big dots that turns the ghosts blue frustrates me, and I usually panic my way into an early demise. They should call it Panic-Man.  But in any case, I can't say it's not fun!  

What are your Pac-Man memories?


  1. Adorable! It's a really, really cute project - I would leave it up past Halloween if I were you :)

  2. Wow, this is super cute, and I may need to copy you!! We put up our simpler Halloween decorations on Friday, but this would be a fun project to spice things up a little! (Maybe add some yellow dots??) Thanks for posting this!

  3. Love, love, love. Makes a geek like me all warm and fuzzy! =)

  4. I'm too young for Pac Man! ;D

    Lovely garland!! It'd be so cute in the blue and yellow and... other colors too! :D

  5. Wahhhh so cute! I love that your Halloween party has a pac man theme!

    And I'm totally *following* you!


Your thoughts - go!
