Introduction: Stashimal: Great Hiding Spot
Second Prize in the
DIY University Contest
Here's a fun little project to turn a stuffed animal in to a great hiding spot for your valuables. its cheap and super fun for kids and adults alike. Enjoy. :) Also... if you put a glow stick in the jar and then close it, it becomes a really cool night light.
Step 1: Off With His Head
Take the head of carefully and cleanly and remove some stuffing.
Step 2: Fit the Jar and Glue
2.A- get the jar in there with a layer of stuffing around it so the stuffed animal keeps it shape
2.B- slowly hot glue the edge of the fabric to just under the threads of your jar, (push the stuffing down just a bit to make the fabric easier to glue)
2.C- hold jar until glue sets
Step 3: Glue the Head on to the Lid
you can do this with the lid attached or not. i prefer it to be on the jar so the teddy bears head is facing the correct way
glue the head on to the lid with the glue being just above the ridge of the lid to completely sink it into the head, and attach the head in the same fashion you did the body. After the head is glued on, make sure the glue held snugly and tight (you will be twisting this part on and off.
Step 4: Finished Product
after all the glue dries you will have your very own Stashimal. now your ready to hide what ever it is your little heart desires.
