Galvanized Chicken Feeder and Mason Jar Repurposed Into Lamp

I always seem to be drawn to galvanized chick feeders when I see them at a flea market or yard sale. (you can buy them brand new at a feed store too) I hung onto this feeder for a while until inspiration hit. Why not put a light in it and turn it into a lamp! I had a few primitive window candle lamps on hand in my stash so I took one out and took it apart and came up with a plan.
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $8 Difficulty: Moderate

    I love it. I have a chicken feeder in my kitchen on top of my vegetable bin. I have a really cute rustic looking battery operated candle. I think I have an instant lamp. Thanks so much.

    If you can't say something nice...I don't think it is tacky at all! Clever, resourceful, rustic; lots of great adjectives come to mind!

    My late mother-in-law kept one of these on her table filled with M&Ms or jelly beans. Grandkids loved it....

      Gladys Dukes Just fill the jar with candy and screw on the metal part and turn upside down. Candy will fill the bottom part and as it is taken out, more will come down into the bottom....
