Mac-O-Lanterns Light the Way This Halloween

by Paul Strauss

What better way to use a couple of old Macintosh computers?

Mac O Lanterns from MAKE

All it took was a little orange paint for the “pumpkin”, and a JPEG viewer application for the face. This is the best use for old Macs since the original MacQuarium.

Got a great geeky holiday craft idea? Send us a tip!

    very creative indeed :) How come you didn’t use old IBM computers?

    Great idea! Better than the Macquarium. (How many fish can you keep anyway?)

    Cute, but why not recycle them instead? Save our landfills and recycle precious metals.

      I kow it’s a year later and all, but I wanted to point out that they re-using the computers also keeps them out of the landfills. so that’s not really something you need to worry about.
