Mason Jar Safe - A Great Idea

I saw this GREAT idea on a fellow bloggers site. Linda from Behind My Red Door saw this on another gal's site and decided to try her hand at it. She calls her crafty project Budget Rice Mix and indeed it is crafty and something I am gonna have to try. Check out Linda's site for her take on the project and her pictures and if you want a step by step tutorial then check out Char and her blog at The Pickled Pepper Patch. Both of these crafty and creative gals made their very own version of the Mason Jar Safe. Linda picked rice for her filler and Char picked rosehips and beans, but if you think about it... you could really pick whatever you want for a filler. I thought coffee beans would make a nice filler as well. So, go ahead and try your hand at it after you check out those links and be sure to leave me a comment after you have made your very own creation. Hmmm, now I need to find me some old mason jars and get busy. Thanks Ladies for the GREAT idea!!

What a great idea! I always love to learn new things about prmitive decorating, as you already know. Yes, I plan to try one of these myself. Hey, what cute gift ideas that they make as well. :)

Oh - I could not get on Behind My Red Door blog. It told me the page was not available. No sure why? The Pickled Pepper Patch worked just fine and so I got to see the step by step directions.

Thanks for the idea, you are one creative prim gal!

Love and Hugs,
Stacey :)

Thanks for the very sweet mention!! I can't wait to see what your safe looks like - coffee is a great idea. You can use any kind of jar - just save one from somethng that runs out!!

I figured out why Stacey couldn't get there - here is the URL you linked and it is too long:
