Piggy Bank

Featured in the doTERRA Living Magazine 


Make a cute place to store your spare change with this piggy bank DIY.
 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Empty doTERRA supplement container with removed label
  • 2 peel and stick wiggle eyes or buttons
  • 4 essential oil bottle lids
  • Pink paint of choice
  • Paint brush or spray paint
  • Felt sheet for ears
  • X-acto knife or craft knife
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • 1 pink pipe cleaner for the tail
  • Sharpie

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Using an X-acto knife, carefully make a coin slot big enough to fit two quarters side-by-side.
  2. Remove the lid and paint the bottle first, then paint the lids separately.
    Tip: Apply multiple thin layers of paint to achieve a brighter and more even look.
  3. For the legs, glue painted essential oil bottle lids to the “belly” side of the bottle.
  4. Cut out the ears from the felt sheet. Pinch the bottom of the ear piece to create a crease, then glue the crease to create an ear-like shape. Glue both ears onto the “head” as shown in the picture. 
    Note: We used a darker colored felt for the interior of the ear. The interior ear piece cut-out is slightly smaller than the outside piece.
  5. For the tail, cut a 4-inch piece of pipe cleaner, bend it to a spiral shape, then glue it to the back of the bottle.
  6. Glue both eyes along the neck of the bottle.
  7. For nostrils, draw two dots on the lid with a Sharpie.
