Wanted two light houses, so I purchased six pots, two plates and two lights. Primed them all with white.

stacked them up on each other on a cement stepping stone round. We actually live two block from the Pacific Ocean, so it can be windy. I put a very heavy rock on bottom pot and tied it with rope through the bottom two pots for stability. Using the ground spike part of the light to keep the rope taunt. Sorry I didn't take a photo. Then I painted windows or doors with black craft paint.

I have yet to Glue the pots together. Put the light in and we are done. They are 24.5" tall ( without the rounder), I may add a 15" pot to the bottom later, if I want them taller. We had to drill a hole through the plate for the light to slip down into. Ended up using a Masonry drill as we fond the items we actually made of cement and covered with Terra Cotta. Every piece ( except the light) is inverted.

They lit up Beautifully. I have decided to add a larger pot to the bottom and make them taller and more of a statement. I will update when completed..

Update: I added another large pot to the bottom. Had two tiny pots I added to the top. I love the heigth much better for the driveway. I would not advise adding any additional pots as the weight may create breaks in the lower pots.

    I would like to do this but where is the list of materials and how much they cost? I don't want to be sent to Amazon to buy pots. I want a list of materials and what they cost at the end of the project.
