Chicken Feeder Candlelight

Today I'm sharing with you one of my 'aha' moments.  While getting ready for a romantic dinner outside tonight (It's our 31st anniversary!) I was looking around for some extra candles/lighting.  Being on a tight budget I did what I normally do -- shop my own house! I came across this chicken feeder I had purchased a while ago and never did anything with it.
 I thought the holes were perfect to hold flowers so I filled it with water and gathered a few wild flowers from my yard.  
 To cover the hole inside, I just laid in a canning jar lid so I can place a candle inside without it falling into the water!
  I added a battery-operated (for obvious reasons lol) tea light candle and screwed the jar back on.  This will go on our table but if you added a few chains to it, it would sure look pretty hanging as well I think.
 Free ambiance!  
Do you ever "shop" your own house?

  2. Lauren,
    Happy Anniversary! 31 years, that's so special. wow, this is a clever idea. I've never seen one of these chicken feeders before. And you've turned it into something functional and lovely at the same time. I hope you have a nice dinner tonight, and I wish you many more years of love.
