My girlfriends and I paint ceramics (for me that's a break from other crafting haha) and I had recently just painted a piggy bank for my 4 month old son. As I was painting I was thinking about how nice it would be to get pedicures this spring and summer. Then I thought about how I should recon a jar of some sorts of save money in. Since we put all our spare change in his bank, I decided to save all my singles and I would need something that could (hopefully) hold a lot!

At first I was thinking a yankee candle jar since I have a few candles near the end of their time, and then I came across a spaghetti container my mom had given me and I was inspired!


I'm pretty sure this is older than I am.

I took some fun fabric scraps, yarn (to make the bottom soft), glue, and acrylic paint..



And boom. Mommy has her own piggy bank! (and a nice piece of decor) The whole project took maybe 20 minutes. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

Aw that's cute! I like the shape of it and the fabric you used is nice.
Plus, I feel like I could actually fill that one! It's taking my boyfriend and I FOREVER to fill up ours because it's so darn huge.

Haha thank you! I'm pretty sure you could find something similar in size and shape at the home goods section of your local thrift store. Cheesy I definitely think I might make more with themed fabrics to match certain rooms in my house (kitchen, nursery..)
