And now I have some pictures for you!
This year I did a lighthouse with attached keeper’s quarters.
It was fun, as always. Lots and lots of Chocolate Skittles for the stone walls, Gummy Savers , choclate Neco wafers, and Twizzlers for the house roof, pretzels for the railing, and the lighthouse roof is Sour Punch Straws. I wasn’t sure what to do for landscaping, since all the lighthouses I know are surrounded by sand and rocks, so we ended up adding some piles of chocolate stones and brown sugar sand.
The lighthouse was by far the hardest I’ve ever put together. Four-sided buildings are much easier to handle than eight-sided ones! I just don’t have enough hands, plus the walls had to lean in a bit, which was a challenge.
Now if we can just get the thing transported without trashing it, I’ll be happy!
Have a blessed New Year, everyone!
