Snow Aliens




About: I like to design and build random things.

This is a quick and fun project to make with snow and glow sticks. I’m not the originator of the idea – similar versions are posted online. Those versions generally have them scattered across an open area like a snowy alien invasion. We didn’t feel like tromping through 2+ feet of snow so these just guard our driveway.
