These little guys are sure to abduct your heart. They're simply out of this world!
These aliens work just like watering globes such as aquaglobes, but they can be made from recycled green glass bottles!
They are perfect for smaller container plants such as herbs or flowers, and excellent indoors and out!
Did I mention they are easier to fill than normal garden globes? Yippee!

Here is What You Will Need:
Glass Sprite Bottle (other green glass bottles would work, but glass sprite bottles have the most alien-y shape and color)
Black Glass Paint (I used Martha Stewart Metallic Glass Paint in black nickel)
Small Tray for Paint
Sturdy Foam Brush
X-Acto Knife or Silhouette cutter
Tray to keep bottles from rolling around (I used an old silverware tray)
Step 1: Make a Face
Using your contact paper and your x-acto knife, cut out a stencil of your desired alien face. Make sure it is about 1" x 1", or else it will be hard to get the stencil to stick without any bubbles or wrinkles.
I didn't include a template for mine, because I think all aliens should be different. Go crazy, make a fun and unique face for your alien.
This can also be done in Silhouette Studio using the provided shapes.
Clean your bottles with windex or other glass cleaner and let dry completely.
Stick your alien face stencils onto the bottles and press down all over.
Make sure there are no bubbles or crinkles next to the cut-out parts of the stencil.
