Ice Cream Pail Alien!

Project - Ice Cream Pail Alien - Instead of throwing away our empty ice cream pail I decided to put it to good use. Connor chose to make an Alien "helmet" out of it. Directions: I cut slanted eyes out of the pail. Then we covered the entire pail with green felt. Connor added tri-beads and two green antenna's (chenille stems) for finishing touches.
Materials Needed - Ice cream pail, green felt, craft glue, scissors, green chenille stems, tri-beads


  1. I laughed out loud when I saw Connor with that green pail on his head!! Haha, what a good idea. Remember when Boyd made Billy one that was a Storm Trooper?

  2. That is TOO cute!!! Thanks for the smile!

    Can't sleep so I'm catching up with some Friday Follows - nice to meet you.

  4. Hello!
    Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog! I hope you and your children have a nice time with the craft! I was a kindergarten teacher until I had my son two years ago. Now I am home with him as well and it is the most wonderful thing I have ever done!
    Hope you have a lovely week and glad I found you too!
    Cheers, ariana
