It doesn't look right...what should I do to my wine bottle lighthouse?
(You'll need to click on the pictures below to be able to see them better.)
I had a hard time painting the black and white spiral so I opted for stripes. (Oh, btw, if you can't tell, I'M NOT A PAINTER.) After I was done, I grabbed my solar light (purchased from the Dollar Tree), took off the bottom rod and sat it on top of the bottle. Hmmm...something was missing. So, I looked at a few pics of actual lighthouses. Most of them seemed to have watch galleries so I made one out of 3" plywood circles (three of them) and painted them black. I used a hole saw to drill a hole through them so the light would fit and sat it on top. Hmmm...something just didn't look right. I go back and look through more photos and decide to make a watch gallery out of one 3" circle, paint it white, drill a hole and set the light on top. It still didn't look like the vision I had for it.
Maybe I should drill a bigger hole in the center of the circles so that it sits further down on the neck of the wine bottle. Maybe I should get smaller circles. Maybe I should just scrap the whole idea.

This kind of innovation i am seeing first time. I have huge collection of Best Decanter for Christmas Gift and wine bottles and i will try to make this kind of wine crafts.
Put a Gallery halfway down. Plus a Staircase to get to the top.
Little tiny fake window glued onto the light house would make it look more realistic and add interest as wood stairs and or railing that you could make with wood straps all cut to a uniform lenght.
