Halloween Crafts – Aliens

What you will need:


  • clear glass or plastic jar with tight-fitting lid
  • Sculpey bake-hard craft clay
  • little plastic (or glass) eyes of various sorts
  • acrylic paints
  • food coloring
  • paper for labels
  • Cotton Balls
  • glue
  • your computer

What to do:


  1. Paint the lid of your jar black, so it will look like a real scientific specimen jar.
  2. Using the Sculpey, model your creature, making sure it will fit inside the jar.
  3. Poke the eyes into it, then take them out
  4. When your creature is finished, bake in a 325-degree oven until the thing turns uniform brown. Let it cool fully.
  5. Paint, and glue in the eyes.
  6. Decide what you have just created. Give it a name like, Twiggle Stimjiggy From Mars.
  7. Create the label for your jar. On your computer, create a scientific specimen label. Print the label.
  8. When the paint on your alien is dry, it’s time to fill the jar with water and insert your “specimen” into the “formaldehyde”.
  9. Tint the water with food coloring. I suggest green or orange for a great effect.
  10. Wind threads of cotton around your alien.
  11. Glue your label to the jar.
