I’ve been using a little mason jar for my youngest son’s “piggy bank” for a while. There are two problems with that. One, I have to handle it anytime he puts change in it because it’s breakable. Two, It was ugly! Sure I could have cutened (yes that’s a word, lol) it up a bit but why for such a short term thing (well it was suppose to be short term).
I decided it was time! So with my container, scrapbook paper, letter stickers, and mod podge in hand I went to work. This project took me all of 10 minutes! It’s cute and my 3 yr old can hold it when he puts his own money in now!
First I washed the canister and let it air dry. Then I cut my scrapbook paper to size, used mod podge to adhere it to the canister (elmers works too–used it before for a project like this), stuck my stickers, cut my hole (big enough for a quarter to fit), and it’s now on display in my son’s room (up high of course–I don’t need him choking on a quarter!).
Easy, cute, and it works!.
