DIY Ghostbusters Proton Pack How To

Get ready for a ghost-busting adventure with our DIY Ghostbusters Proton Pack guide. Crafted from household items, this budget-friendly project promises a ghostly addition to your gear.


  • Styrofoam or cardboard for the base
  • Plastic saucer drip tray for the cyclotron
  • Miscellaneous plastic plumbing pipes
  • Vacuum or shop vac hose
  • Electrical wire
  • Switch box & light switch (the older, the better!)
  • Tupperware
  • Pencil, eraser, ruler, Exacto-Knife
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Gorilla Tape
  • Black spray paint

Building the Base:

  1. Cut the styrofoam or cardboard to form the base of your proton pack.
  2. Arrange all pieces, including the plastic saucer drip tray and plumbing pipes, in the desired formation.

Assembling the Pack:

  1. Spray paint all components black for that authentic Ghostbusters look.
  2. Use a hot glue gun to securely attach the pieces together.

Creating Straps:

  1. Utilize old luggage straps for authenticity.
  2. Drill holes through the base and tie the straps together to secure or use glue for added stability.

Final Touch:

  1. Add a finishing touch with black puck lights from Lowe’s (priced at $12.99). These self-adhering lights easily pop onto the cyclotron, providing the perfect glow for your proton pack.

Now that you’ve created your Proton Pack, assemble your team and get ready for a spooktacular time that will be remembered long after the ghosts are gone!
