What you'll need to make your clay pot lighthouse are different sized clay pots, exterior paint (if used outside), and any decorations of your choice. You can see from the pictures that some of the lighthouses have a saucer on top. And if you're planning to place your clay pot lighthouse in the yard, add a solar light! I think that would be fun. Of course you could also have a lantern with a candle as a beacon of light. And glue the clay pots together, should they not nest securely enough. Choose different clay pots and saucer sizes to make a smaller or larger lighthouse.

Here is another example from a lighthouse kit sold at Mary Maxim, but no longer available. Placed in a large saucer your lighthouse could feed the birds! Or fill with water and it could function as a bird bath. I think it would be fun to have a clay pot lighthouse anywhere in the yard, on the porch or next to the front door. Where would you place it?
