Travel Fund - Airplane Piggy Bank - finished bankDo you have an empty vitamin bottle? Don't toss it out! You can upcycle your vitamin bottle into a piggy bank.

Some ideas of what you can make:

- car

The possibilities are endless!

I decided to make my piggy bank into an airplane and this piggy bank will serve like a "travel fund". You can stuff bills in the opening. You can apply this same concept to other containers like milk or water bottles (or the gallon ones).

Total Time: 35 minutes + drying time

Supplies:

  • vitamin container
  • scissors
  • hot glue
  • paint/paint brush
  • tape
  • craft sticks
  • water bottle cap

Steps:

  1. Using an empty vitamin container, peel off the sticker for a clean surface.
  2. Travel Fund - Airplane Piggy Bank - remove label

  3. I went with an airplane theme (blue) so I painted the vitamin cap with this True Blue acrylic paint. Set aside and allow to dry.

  5. Using scrap paper, I practiced and freehanded the airplane wings. Once you achieved the wings you like, you can cut them out from the color paper you wish to use. Crease a little on the wings to attach onto the vitamin container.

  7. With a strip of paper, roll into tube, to create the airplane's turbine engines. You will need two.

  11. For the airplane's propeller, I used craft sticks, a water bottle cap and secured in place with hot glue. I also taped on the airplane's turbine engines.
