Creative money box

DIY piggy banks for wishes both great and small

Are you saving up for your next holiday, or perhaps a new car? With a DIY money box as smart as this, saving will be so much easier! Try jazzing up glass storage jars using the gorgeous colours in the edding permanent spray range. We went for pastel shades, because they go together brilliantly, and they also look so pretty and summery. If you arrange your money boxes attractively on a shelf, then they’ll always be on view and you can top them up at every opportunity. Glass containers are best because you can use a template when spray painting to leave a small see-through window – so you can have the pleasure of checking how your savings are doing! The edding permanent spray range gives you a choice of over 35 outstanding colours, all of which are exceptionally opaque, quick-drying and long-lasting.
