Foam Cutter or Serrated Knife (adult assistance)
FloraCraft Smooth Finish®
Mini Baby food jars
Battery Operated Tealights
To start off this craft I went over both cones with the FloraCraft Smooth Finish®. I just smoothed is down with my fingers (super simple) and let dry 4 hours. Once the cones were dry I lightly sanded them down.
Next, I painted them both white.
Now it’s time to cut the tips off. I just eyed it.
I wanted to make sure it would be the same size as the baby food jar lid. The FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Cutter cut through the foam perfect.
Ok, making straight lines on a cone is NOT easy. So I put my thinking cap on and tried to figure out how to attempt this. I thought rubber bands would be perfect.
It did, BUT I only had the two large rubber bands and I had three cones to do. Then I didn’t have the size to do the top. So if you can find several large rubber bands to fit the top and bottom that would be perfect!
So I just decided to free hand it
Now it’s time to add the window and doors!
First I painted on the black windows, then once it dried I added the white lines in between. Super Simple!
My favorite part, adding the lights! I knew right away that I wanted to use a baby food jar for the top. I painted the lids to match the lighthouse and then used tacky glue to keep in place.
I let them dry a couple hours before I placed the jars on top.
Finally I added my tea lights and I was ready to display! I think they go perfect with my coastal theme.
