Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t out yet, but everyone already knows their favorite part of the new movie —the adorable droid, BB-8. Fan fervor surrounding this little ball of fun hasn’t let up, stoked by ridiculously cute videos of BB-8 watching The Force Awakens trailer.

While figuring out how the little droid actually works is still the stuff of well-researched fan fiction, Disney has released a guide to paying homage to BB-8 this Halloween. The new how-to video gives fans a step-by-step map to transforming an ordinary pumpkin into a Star Wars-themed jack-o-lantern that will be the envy of everyone on the block.

All it takes is two pumpkins, a template that fans can download from the Disney mothership itself, some crafting skills, and soon fans can have their very own personal droid, no batteries required.
