Hiding things in plain sight can be a fun and secure way to protect your valuables from evil. There are hundreds of places to hide your stuff in your home without spending any money. We all have seen hide-a-safes, can safes, and decoy safes on instructibles before, but I feel that some of them are a bit complicated. I assume that if the thief picks up or moves the can safe then the jig is up, so a homemade one is just as good as a $15 fake Ajax can. There are many items in the home that people may see but not disturb, I used a mayonnaise jar. Unless the perp has a hankering for sandwich, I think it will do just fine.

Jar (from recycling bin)
Paint (color matching original contents)
First, clean the inside of the jar with soapy water to breakdown the oils in the jar. This will ensure that the paint will adhere to the plastic. When washing the jar, keep the label as dry as possible.Next, you must dry the jar and place it into the bag upside down. Then, tape the bag around the jar.
Cut the bag at the opening of the jar, then push the jar through the opening by sliding the bag down.
Tape the opening where you don’t want paint to reach. I wanted the threads to be free of paint as well as the inside lip. The lid covers the inside lip.
