Why I Made this DIY Alien Candy Container
Every since I was a kid, I loved watching old Sci-Fi movies with my older brothers. This was before 3D animation or CGI. I remember seeing alien spaceships that looked like flying saucers with a dome on top and colorful lights around the rim. They must have been hanging by a string because they were shaky and didn’t fly smoothly. As a kid, I didn’t know the difference but to me, that was a flying saucer.
When I was preparing for a Father’s Day TV segment at NBC Affiliate, WBAL, I wanted to make an interesting candy container that held jelly beans. As I was drinking a frozen coffee, I looked at the domed lid with a hole where the straw was inserted and it came to me. It reminded me of the top of an old-style flying saucer that I used to see in the science fiction movies I watched as a child.
I instantly envisioned a retro flying saucer spaceship with a dome top and a cute, little green alien peeking out to see where he had landed. The bright colors of the jelly beans would simulate the energy powering the ship.
