This time of year, everyone is looking for ways to DIY presents for the holidays. Especially within the homesteading community, we are excited to put our own spin on a traditional product found around the barn.
One Little Giant® product that lends itself to just this cause is our mason jar chick feeder. With its classic, retro appeal, people are able to turn this inexpensive chicken accessory into a one-of-a-kind gift that any recipient will love!
This DIY Sewing Kit removes the mason jar and utilizes just the base of the chick feeder for any DIY seamstress! Karen over at Sew Many Ways has adapted the feeder to hold spools of thread, scissors, and pins all in one compact package.
Adjustable to the season, this DIY lamp is an easy project even for non-electricians. For less than $10, you have a new lamp to brighten all of your holiday parties. The tutorial will walk you right through the process! While rated as a moderately difficult task, this lamp is great for thrifters who have a stock of supplies from flea markets or garage sales. It’s the ultimate in repurposing found goods!
Turning a chick feeder into a candy dish is our personal favorite around the office. Adjustable for the seasons, we always have it ready to go at our front reception desk for the casual grazer. We have also used them to decorate tables during large meetings to keep everyone engaged and sugary!
