Shindle with Decoupaged 3-D 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.

For this project you will need:

- poured ceramic form or a similar form out of wood or another material
