Here is a tutorial on how I made some money boxes from used plastic bottles. I actually prepared the bottles but the decoration was actually done by my 10 year old daughter.
My daughter just raided the scrap fabric bin and printed off some designs on the printer to make these lovely money boxes, so this was a very inexpensive project.
Plastic bottle and lid
Ribbon / Lace
Glue / Double sided tape
Knife / Scissors
Step 1: Remove all labels and clean the bottle.
Step 2: Puncture a hole into the lid (I used a knife but you must be very careful this can be dangerous!) I used a screwdriver to make the hole wide enough for coins.
Step 3: Decorate your bottle. New labels added using double sided tape. Ribbon was glued around the neck of the bottle.
Below is another money box that my daughter decorated. This really is an easy project that the children can join in with. As long as the hole in the lid is done by an adult the rest of the money box can be decorated by the children.
