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.
