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.

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.
