Wood Craft Wishing Well - The Completed Project
Final Touches to the Wishing Well
The wood craft wishing well may be finished however you desire.
The balsa wood pieces can be stained to give a natural look,
In this case, the well is painted, but the dollhouse shingles are left
to look like natural wood.
Decorating the miniature wishing well is the most fun. In the image shown,
plastic flowers were used to fill the well, making it into a planter.
The flower pieces used were remnants of plastic flowers purchased for their
leaves, used in the ribbon flower project.
If you enjoyed this wishing well design, I'm sure you'd also like the
foot tall gazebo project and another wishing well project, both
available in my Miniature Gazebo And Other Wood Crafts book. Additional wood crafts are described in the book, including some endearing miniature furniture.
I have created another version of the miniature wishing well. It's a bit
more involved to build, and has a base that is round. It makes heavy use of
doll pins for the construction. You can purchase these plans in a craft
booklet that also has a few other wood craft project plans at
