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 used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
