There are a surprising number of crafts made using bleach bottles. This is a guide about crafts using bleach bottles.
Use a regular bleach bottle, rinse it out with water and baking soda (takes the bleach smell away). Let dry. Paint with acrylic pink paint and let dry. Paint your spots on with either black or brown acrylic paint and let dry for about and hour.
Use black or brown felt and pink felt and cut out ears, hot glue them on. You will need either 4 small thread spools or 4 medium size thread spools for the legs, I get mine at 99 cent store. Cut your holes in bottom of bottle so that the spools make the piggy bank stand right. Cut the circles and insert spool, hot glue around each one so they don't come out. Paint on your eyes and your nose, a slot for the money, then spray with a sealer and you are done.

Does anyone remember a while back, those pocketbooks made out of the bottom half of a plastic Clorox bottle? I believe they were crocheted. Does anyone know where I can find a pattern? I've looked on line and have had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm guessing you've found it already:
I don't crochet but I am thinking I will make some denim purses with the clorox bottle for the bottom. It will help to keep some plastic out of the landfill. Thanks for a thoughtful question.
I found this website with photos of purses made from bleach bottles. If you are an experienced crocheter it would be very easy to make one for yourself. I prefer to cut the bleach bottle shorter than the one shown in the photo. Everyone has their own preference.
Read the 3rd post on this website, it will give you the instructions:
Thank you all for the information on the bleach bottle purse.
Thrifty Fun is a great site in finding things you can't find yourself.
Does anyone have the instructions for the snowman face wall hanging, leprechaun face, bunny face, and the turkey all made from Clorox bottles and yarn like the Santa face?
Here is one:
This is my second year of homeschooling and I wanted to show the girls how to decoupage. After several hours of thinking of what they could do that would be fun as well as useful, I went into my laundry room. And there atop of my washer sat an empty bleach bottle. The bottle was laying on its side and from the front it looked to me like a piggy. And hence, this is where I got the idea.
