Crafts for Summer and All Seasons - Shindle with Lighthouse Motif


This plaster of Paris shindle makes a nice decoration for the bathroom especially in the summer. The 3-D lighthouse makes one think of warm beaches and the ocean.



Summer Craft Project - 3-D Lighthouse Shindle - Maritime Craft

For this project you will need:

- poured ceramic form or a similar form out of wood or another material
- paper napkin with lighthouse design
- a modelling clay
- paper napkin applique glue
- seashells
- raffia




1. Follow the instructions for paper napkin applique and also the instructions for the modelling clay. The first paper napkin lighthouse gets glued directly onto the shindle form. Adhere a second lighthouse onto the modelling clay as teh instructions require and cut out with a craft knife, once dried a bit. 
2. Once both lighthouses are prepared and ready, glue the clay lighthouse onto the form.
