In place of the lantern used in the first tutorial we featured, this one makes use of tiny flower pots and a flower pot saucer to create the lighted top of the lighthouse. Roughing up the paint gives it a more rustic and weathered look. The addition of shells and small figures give it a nice, beachy touch. You can see the tutorial over at Craft Ideas!
