DIY Canning Jar and Chick Feeder Lamp

Windy Meadows FarmThis little lamp came together in under 5 minutes ... seriously, and I had everything on hand. I love little "What if I tried this?" moments!

Take one metal chick feeder, a vintage canning jar, and an electric light ...

all lamp supplies

A little nudge and the chick feeder will separate easily ... center the light on the bottom of the feeder (I put a little poster putty under it to keep it straight), slip the electric cord through one of the feeder openings, and put the feeder back together.

Twist the canning jar in place ... and ta-da!

I added some rosehips and dried orange peel in the feeder openings and set it on a little table. Definitely the quickest how-to I've done in ages!
