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
