Patio Table Lighthouse Light
You have probably seen the terracotta light houses before. I have one I made a few years back that is one of the typical large sized ones. This one is made with smaller terracotta pots and is great for a patio table light. These are really easy to make, great craft for adults and kids, and they're not very expensive. Makes a great gift idea too!
For this project you'll need:
3 different size terracotta pots - for mine I'll be using 3 of the smallest sized pots I could find.
Acrylic paint of your choice
You'll paint your largest terracotta pot in a color of your choice. You can decide if you want to paint the bottom of the terracotta pot - when you stack them later you won't see this. The only one that matters is the very top one (smallest terracotta pot).
You'll paint your middle size terracotta pot again in whatever color you would like.
Lastly you'll paint the smallest terracotta pot in a color your pick. I decided to make my top and bottom terracotta pots the same color and the middle one a different color. There is not right or wrong - design it for you :)
After you have painted all 3 flower pots, let them dry completely.
Use silicone to "stick" them together. The silicone will need to dry for 24 hours to dry.
Using a sharpie (or you could use paint) make your windows on your light house.
Once windows are dry, I recommend spraying your light house with an acrylic sealer of your choice to help preserve it.
Pull the stem off your solar light. You can silicone your solar light onto the top like this. I decided to saw off the little stem at the bottom to make the solar light flat.
Once your silicone is dry, it's ready to go outside.
The more sun your solar light gets, the longer it will stay lit up in the evenings.
Here is a picture of the solar light lit up. I love my new little patio light.
I'll be making this and more things with terracotta pots on Hometalk's Facebook Live DIY - Tuesday. Aug 8th at 3pm EST.
