We are all familiar with the sweet clinkering of the coins that we save up in our piggy banks. But it does break our hearts, every time we have to smash them, once they are full. So, to save ourselves the heartbreak, here is an easy tutorial to make an adorable recyclable piggy bank.
A plastic jar
Pink chart paper
Pink acrylic paint
Spare marker caps
Now follow these steps:
2.Now place the jar, so that the coin slot is on the top, and attach four spare marker caps to the bottom of the jar. These caps will serve as the legs of your piggy bank.
3.Now paint the jar with two coats of pink acrylic colour. Let it dry.
4.Cut two triangles, with round edges, out of the pink chart paper. These will be the ears of your piggy. Stick the ears onto the jar, on the curved surface, just behind the lid. Fold the upper corners of the ears, to give it a realistic look.
5.For the tail of your piggy, make concentric circles on the pink chart paper and follow the lines to cut the tail out. Stick it to the bottom of the jar.
Keep in mind:
Take the help of an adult while using the paper cutter.
You can go crazy with your piggy bank, colour it, bedazzle it, decorate it with feathers, make your piggy bank unique!
