Im quite sure these little beauties are chicken feeders or waterers.  I was very excited to receive them.
I added them to my existing candle holders because when I saw them, my first thought was that they were the perfect size and shape to hold a candle. I may paint them a cream color in the future but for now I like their metal color.
Nests seem to be popular so I tried my hand at it. Its a perfect way to display my stone eggs. I find it symbolic that it was once actually used for chickens. I  have a glass cover for the cake stand so can make this into a cloche.
Cute little can and tub.
I decoupaged them and added them to my existing barn board garden angel.

I'm still working with my package of junk with Karilelek.
