I really like the way this one turned out...the glass square holders were part of a chandalier that I got at the re-store. I found some sticky cut outs of roosters and chickens and placed on the glass, put a little hen and chick plant in the middle to tie the whole theme together. I then glued the plant and holders to a piece of barnboard and placed tea lights inside. It looks really cool when lit and the shadows and frosted glass illuminate's looks like sunset or sunrise at the farm.

This would work also with the same animal as it walks down the path... like cartoon flip books...

I love it!

This is so cool! Very creative use of the glass squares. There are so many different themes this concept could work with…Christmas (snowflakes)…Valentines Day (hearts)…etc. Great job!
