DIY – A piggy bank for penny pinchers

The problem with piggy banks is: If you can open it, it’s generally no good. After all, it’s surprisingly easy to find a good reason to dip into your savings before that planned holiday. So there’s only one thing for it – pigs without backdoors!

If “backdoor” just made you smile in that context: shame on you! Right, and now it’s time to get down to business.

You need:

  • Serviettes
  • White glue
  • A wide brush
  • Cutter
  • Pencil
  • Decorative string or ribbon
  • Jam jar

How it works:

Step 1: Cut a serviette of your choice into four equally sized squares.

Step 2: Mix two parts glue with one part water. Mix it all together in the lid of the jam jar using your brush.

Step 3: Apply the glue-water mixture to each serviette piece and stretch it over the opening of your jam jar. Firmly press down the sides. Use your brush to push parts that are sticking out into the indentation of the glass thread. It is best to use at least four layers of serviette. Personally, I layered them slightly displaced to each other so that there are equal amounts of serviette around the opening.

Step 4: Allow to dry overnight. Your serviette cover should now be hard and have no more dents (caused by humidity).

Step 5: Use a pencil to outline a slot on the serviette lid. Make sure it’s broad and wide enough for a folded bank note or a five franc piece. And now it’s time to get cutting!

Step 6: Decorate your piggy bank with a nice piece of ribbon. And most importantly: Don’t forget to feed it!

Instructions: Only open when full to the brim!

Als Disney-Fan trage ich nonstop die rosarote Brille, verehre Serien aus den 90ern und zähle Meerjungfrauen zu meiner Religion. Wenn ich mal nicht gerade im Glitzerregen tanze, findet man mich auf Pyjama-Partys oder am Schiessstand. PS: Mit Speck fängt man nicht nur Mäuse, sondern auch mich.
