Mayonnaise Jar "Piggy" Bank

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
