Halloween Craft! Frankenstein Piggy Bank!

The church I work at was raising money by having people make piggy banks so I feeling inspired decided to make a Halloween themed one!
I mean how could I possibly resist a trip to Michael's(craft store)?
I havn't been able to do any really fun crafty projects in way too long so I was incredibly excited for this!!

I'm also entering it into Blue Eyed Blessing's Craft Challenge!



I started with and used:

-an empty VOSS water bottle
-a styrofoam circle base
-an empty can of (special edition) Jones Spooookiwi soda
-sparkly felt
-pompoms
-googly eyes
-colored sparkley sticky foam sheets
-glitter hot glue
-Halloween ribbon

The hole to put the money in is in the opening of his shirt/chest and the money can be removed by unscrewing the lid which is attached to the foam base.






I'm excited about how it turned out! What do you think?

Wow! Now, that's super creative. I never would have thought to create something like this. I must say I am rather impressed with your ability to create this piggy bank using a soda can as inspiration! Thanks for adding your project to this month's craft challenge. Great to "see" a new face! ;)
