I made a pac man paper mobile for my baby niece and her parents last winter. This is how.

The only cost for this is for five sheets of colored paper. About $2.

Staring with how it turned out (sorry for the crappy image quality).

Step 1: Make paper template

I free formed three paper ghost templates in photoshop. One for each eye possition (lookin up, down and sideways).

I used a perfect circle, 90- and 45-degree lines. And then I drew the holes for the eyes, lightly skewed for comic effect.

Note: this is not the actual template I used, but a fairly accurate reconstruction.

I got some really thin wire at a Micheals store, work great.
You should make the ghost blue, like they're running away from pac-man. Good job.

Thanx! They are metal wires from a discarded wire hanger.
