Upcycled Ceilng Fan Lights

OK, so this doesn't take much effort but I sure was pleased with the result. WE replaced our ceiling fan and as I looked at the parts lying on my living room floor it seemed a shame to toss them.
Ceiling fan bulb covers
Battery Operated Tea Lights I used these. They are on timer. Details about them on my site link at the bottom.
We took the fan down and I took a good look at the light covers. They were in such nice shape.
I didn't need to do anything other than wipe them off.
These lights are awesome. They are on a 6 hour on 18 hour off cycle. I'm going on 3 months and they are still going. Batteries are fairly inexpensive and they come with extras.
I tested out a variety of unique ways to use these. This is my favorite and sits on my coffee table. CHECK MY LINK BELOW FOR OTHER WAYS TO USE THEM.

    Are the light covers made of glass or plastic? Can you use small candles? What about any wax drips? Great idea!

    Where did you find the small timer votives? I've looked all over for that size with timers!
