This outdoor hide-a-key makes a unique Father’s Day gift. Finding camouflage supplies is half the fun of creating this great gift. And you’re helping the environment by recycling a pill bottle.
Here’s the supplies that you’ll need:
- Empty pill bottle
- Brown, black, and green permanent markers
- Stone, pinecone, large twig, or fairy garden figurine
- E6000 adhesive
Let’s make the hide-a-key:
- Take a nature walk to gather what you’ll put on the top of the hide-a-key. You’ll want something that will blend with where you’ll bury it.
- To help with camouflaging the hide-a-key color the bottle cap with dark markers—black, brown, or dark green—that will blend in where it will be buried.
- Put a healthy dollop of E6000 adhesive on the bottle cap and glue your camouflage piece in place. Let the adhesive dry thoroughly.
- Dad will need to add a key to the bottle, and bury it after you give it to him. The hide-a-key can be buried in landscaping shrubbery or hidden in an outdoor flower pot.
