Geeky LED Jack-O-Lantern DIY Project

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 2, 2010


My daughter was born on Halloween so it’s a pretty big deal around out house, with all sorts of decorations and parties to be had. It’s time to start decorating for Halloween already and if you want something a bit geekier for your porch than a carved pumpkin, this is the DIY project for you.

One particular geek out there has taken one of those large fake foam pumpkins and cut the back out of it to make way for a control board, power supply, and a bunch of LED lights. The LEDs in this project are red and poked into the front of the pumpkin in an arrangement that allows the controller set up to provide different facial expressions.

The final project looks weird in the daylight, but when it’s dark, it looks really awesome. Plus, using a fake pumpkin means you don’t have to scoop out those disgusting pumpkin innards. The directions to replicate the LED pumpkin for yourself can be found over at The Vapor Trail.
