3D papercrafts and luminaries are two of my favorite crafts, and with this paper lighthouse, we get two in one! And this paper lighthouse is a real masterpiece — everyone is amazed when they realize this lighthouse is made entirely from paper! This lighthouse would look fantastic next to my 3D paper gazebo (also a luminary) and my 3D garden arbor with the miniature roses. This beautiful 3D papercraft adds a magical touch to your home decor or party table centerpiece! So let’s dive right into how to create this masterpiece of a 3D papercraft luminary using cardstock, vellum, and glue.
