    What does a lighthouse symbolize? A lighthouse can symbolize various things, such as overcoming challenges and adversity or guidance. It is most commonly used to symbolize a way forward and help in navigating through the world. Because lighthouses are constructed to withstand powerful storms and turbulent ocean waters, it is no wonder why they are frequently depicted as symbols of strength. Why not make a lighthouse into a wind chime? Now you can! Decorate a 10’H laser cut wood lighthouse, then string the five 3-3/4” chimes on with the supplied jute. 5”W at the base. Decorating supplies are not included.
