Looking for a great DIY project to wrap up your weekend?

How about turning a good old fashioned gourd into a chic and creative lamp?

This project idea and how-to video come from the good folks at MAKE Magaine (and via LifeHacker).

All you need to turn some hard-shelled gourds into festive party lights or elegant accent lights is:

  • a gourd
  • drill and drill bits
  • LED Christmas lights
  • assorted cutting utensils
  • newspaper (for easy cleanup)
