    Glue the largest coil to the circle of purple card for the alien body, then glue the three smaller coils above this for the eyes. Add three strips of green to link the eyes to the body. Use strong glue to attach three wiggly / googely eyes. Make four quilled circles with yellow crimped paper and add short strips of paper to these. Then make a red coil for the aliens mouth using a 20cm length.
