This is Instructable is a step-by-step description of how I made my long-awaited traditional 'flying saucer' Halloween prop! I've wanted to build one for a long time, and had decided this is the year to do it! My concept was to take a couple of old 10 foot satellite dishes and slap them together to make the stereotypical saucer shape, then decorate it accordingly. As you will see in this Instructable, the path took a few unexpected turns before the quite satisfactory end result was realized.
Step 1: So Many Supplies, So Little Time...
Here is a partial list of the many items I either bought for the project or had already in my possession:
Nuts and screws
Double-sided mounting tape
Ceiling fan light globe
Solar yard lights
Various strobe lights
Inflatable alien toys
