Prissy Pig Bank

This is a quick easy craft the kids will enjoy making.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes


  • large plastic soda bottle
  • detergent bottle cap
  • four soda bottle caps
  • 2 12 inch pink chenille stems
  • pink spray paint
  • scissors
  • serrated knife
  • hot glue
  • tacky glue
  • two pink card stock scrapes

  • two 1/2 inch black buttons
  • two 3/4 inch red buttons
  • scrap of fabric 4-5 inches by diameter of bottle
  • Exacto knife
  • small sharp scissors


  1. Cut off the open end of the bottle back to where the detergent cap will fit up snugly to the bottle. Make a slice in the top of the bottle where you want the coin slot, half way between the front and back. Make a small hole in the top center of the back for the pipe cleaners you will twist into a tail.

  2. Spray your detergent cap pink. You can also paint your bottle caps now too if you want them pink. Since the bottle caps are the feet, you can make them a different color. Trace your ear patterns onto your two papers, cut them out and glue the smaller one inside the larger one with tacky glue. Set them aside to dry while you wrap your fabric around the bottle.

  3. Center the fabric from front to back then glue one end to the bottom of the bottle with the tacky glue. Top that one with the other end and secure it with tacky glue. Turn your bottle over and with sharp small scissors cut the fabric from the coin slot then put tacky glue under the fabric to hold it in place.

  4. With the hot glue attach your bottle caps to the bottom for feet. Twist the pipe cleaners together then wrap them around a pencil for the tail; put a drop of tacky glue on one end and push it through the hole you made.

  5. Make a pleat in each ear and glue in place with hot glue, see picture for placement, glue on the eyes and the snout and start saving your change.

Who wouldn't like to see their change add up in this adorable girl! I keep mine in a cup where I can't see it. I am going over to see if the grandkids want to make some this weekend? How cool!
