Easter Jelly Bean Feeder


This is a VERY easy Easter idea...


This is a chicken feeder
that you can buy at any feed store
like Tractor Supply


I spray painted it with
everyone's favorite
heirloom white by Rustoleum


I used a quart jar for the top
filled it with pastel jelly beans


you can use this idea 
at Christmas just use
red or green spray paint
and fill with M&M's
or any other holiday

  6. This is so cute! I love it painted white. I bet it would be fun in a bunch of pastel colors too! I've seen those the farm and feed store before, but could never decide what to make out of them:)

  9. Love it!
    I have to make a special journey if I want to go to a farm supplies place as our local one became just a pet store. But I do love this project.
