Step 2 Cut a slit in the centre of the foil dish and push the alien into it so it so the alien stands up. Glue around the rim of the plastic cup and place it on top of the alien, glueing it to the dish. The cup will form the window of the UFO! Then decorate the UFO however you wish to give it a space look, I drew some red circles around the edge. Subscribe to my newsletter to receive fun craft ideas, offers and freebies!
