Hidden Jar

Introduction: Hidden Jar

Everyone knows about hiding a key under a rock. Thats no longer a secret. But randomly burying a key could mean you lose it forever! By using a small rock no one will think a key could be under it, But, by pulling it up you reveal a jar hiding anything you need.

Step 1: Materials

For this you will need the following:
Glue (any kind should work. I used hot glue).
A rock of your choice, the rougher the better.
A jar capable of holding what you need.

Step 2: Creating

Give the rock and jar lid a good cleaning. You can skip this step, but the glue will have a hard time holding onto the rock/lid. Roughing up the lid with sandpaper will help as well (but rinse the shavings off after!)
Sprinkling dirt over the glue will help hide the jar and cover the glue.

Step 3: Done!

Your finished product should look similar to this.

Step 4: Hide

Fill your jar with whatever you wish to hide. And now feel no fear leaving your valuables in plain sight outside.

    Great idea! This is very creative and I'm going to make it now!

    Thanks for sharing!

    You could even improve on the idea by connecting the jar to the stone using a chain, although that would make it a bit trickier to make. But it would remove the stone from the slightly disturbed ground.

    Either way, good idea, thanks for sharing!
