Hide-A-Safe for Dad
Make this Hide-A-Safe for Dad as his secret hiding place to stash his special fund for fun times with his kids. This special jar is a good place for his to keep his jewelry while working on messy jobs so they won’t get covered the grease, paint, dirt. etc.
Medium Size Wide Mouth Jar
(we used a salsa jar)
Vinyl Letters Spelling "DAD"
Low Temp Glue Gun
Nuts and Bolts
Empty Toilet Paper Tube
Scrap of Cardboard
Cut the empty cardboard tube to the same height as the jar.
Cut a circle out of cardboard that will fit inside the jar and rest on the bottom of the jar. Glue the cardboard tube on end to the middle of the cardboard circle. Set inside the jar.
Fill all around the tube with nuts and bolts leaving the tube empty.
Glue twine all around the edge of the jar top beginning on the bottom side of the lip. Continue gluing and wrapping twine until the top is completely covered.
Glue on the vinyl letters to spell "DAD".
