Introduction: ● CAIRN PAPERWEIGHT ●

This is an easy and fast to do paperweight.

You can use it like a pot, garden or house decor.

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

You need:

-stones of increasing sizes;

-glue for stones (or silicon, or glue gun);

-aluminum foil (optional).

Step 2: TRY THE TOWER

Try to built a tower with the stones that you have, do you decide the number of stones and the position,

and they will have a natural look when glue together.

Step 3: GLUE THE STONES

Glue them together.

Use just a bit of glue otherwise it will be noticeable from the edges of the stones.

Step 4: COVER IN ALUMINUM PAPER

If you glue is a kind that dry slowly you can cover the stone tower with aluminum paper to hold it together until it will dry.

Step 5: DONE!

You are done!

In the wild stacks of stones similar to what you made are called cairns.

Thanks! I remember you did it!

This way they are better because they stand up by themselves.
