Day 26: Paper Cup Light Houses with Mid-Craft Crisis
Hi. I am Glenyce from Mid-Craft Crisis. It is great to be here for the Summer Soiree. It's a bit chilly to be thinking summer here in Australia at the moment but hey, I am thinking warm thoughts :-)
Our youngest daughter, Amelia has Cystic Fibrosis and part of her treatment requires her to have medication from a nebuliser pump once a day. Each treatment Amelia and her twin big sisters, Esther and Ellamay do "pump time" crafts to help pass the time.
I love lighthouses. I have a collection of little wooden ones from souvenir shops. This craft was from a sudden inspiration that hit me when I was trying to decide what we could make using these LED battery operated tea light candles. I found mine at a discount store in a pack of 4 for $3.
We used a paper cup, a plastic cup, coloured paper, glue, markers and our LED candles. You can probably see how we made these. We covered the paper cups in white paper first and then added strips of red paper. Using our markers we added windows and a door. Then we added the bottom half of a plastic cup (which was a little smaller than the paper cup) for the top. We coloured the top with the black markers, added the LED candle and we were done!
