Bean Jar Safe

Materials Needed for the Project:

* Jar with a Lid
* Small Piece of Cardboard
* Various Types of Dry Brans
* Hot Glue Gun
* Scissors


This project is based on the theory of hiding in plain sight. The goal is to create a decorative object that doubles as a hiding place for valuables. To start the project, cut your paper towel roll tube to be the exact height of your jar. Then, Cut 4 equally-spaced 1/2 inch slits on the bottom of the tube. Fold the four cut sections out and glue the roll to a small cardboard cirle, so that the tube has an enclosed bottom. Next, fill the bottom of your jar with dry beans approximately a half inch high. Place the tube in the center of the jar and begin filling the jar with dry beans in any pattern that you like. Try to avoid filling the inside of the tube because you will not be a ble to get those beans out until the project is complete. Fill your jar about 1/8 of an inch from the rim. Finally, fill the remaining 1/8 of an inch between the jar and the tube with hot glue. Let the glue dry for about ten minutes, place your valuables inside the tube, secure the lid, and feel free to hide it in plain sight.
