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)

I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
