DIY lighthouse

The following post contains an affiliate link to help fill my crafting piggy bank.
You can make a DIY lighthouse for your Summer patio or garden, and all you need are two plastic or clay flower pots, red, white & blue craft paint, craft paint brushes, painters tape, scissors, and a lantern. Ikea lanterns are perfect for the light on top. Antique lanterns look super cool too. I made my oil lantern safer, by taking off the bottom (luckily it just unscrewed) and placing the battery powered light from an old Halloween lantern, underneath! 
Then, light up your garden, porch or patio!
Be sure too check out all the Summer ideas on VMG206 the whole month of June!
Join the party!
