    I made a simple one. I used 3 terra cotta pots. 1 very large, 1 large, 1 medium. These are the 3 largest sizes if that helps. You can paint them any colors. I painted mine blue with black around the rim of the pots. You stack them together upside down. At the top there will be a hole for the solar light. Be sure to buy one that will fit the hole. I painted the door on the bottom pot and put windows on the middle. The cheap ones that stick in the ground work great.If you can't draw (like me), cut a cardboard to trace a door and window. I used a cross like window and painted inside bright yellow to give the appearance of light. I added a window to the top of the door and painted it the same. An artist could go crazy painting these, but mine turned out ok, I sold it at a yard sale for $80 and my neighbor that bought it put it outside in his yard and it is still there today. I used a spray sealer all over it when finished. I hope this helps or opens up your creativity to attempt it yourself.
