I made these piggy banks out of empty mayonnaise jars. I painted the lid and ears (heavy card stock), painted and hot glued dowel rods for the feet, and hot glued on a tail made from a pipe cleaner. I cut out the opening in the top with a knife and hot glued around the sharp edges. My kids just love their piggy banks.

I have made piggy banks from 2 liter drink bottles, I have used empty thread spools as well as the caps from the 2 liter bottles for the legs. I used felt for the ears and pipe cleaners for the tail. I bought wiggly eyes and hot glued them on. Pam

This is a bank made from mayo jar.

Approximate Time 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Spray paint the jar (you can use pickle or mayo or any kind you choose.) Let dry. Stencil or free hand the design on the jar. You can put on any theme you want. I made this one for my little girl and I left the lid off so she could put her money in. You can seal it and put a slot in the top if you like.

What kind of paint can be used on the lid if you want to paint it another color? I am referring to the mayonnaise jar piggy bank project with a plastic lid?

They sell spray paint just for plastic, at the hardware store. Wash the caps in vinegar first and watch the oil from your hands before painting.
