DIY Decoupaged Piggy Bank loaded with Glitter

 

Decoupage rescues this Thrift Store Piggy Bank! 

I’ll be featuring a few Thrift Store Items that we’ll rescue with Decoupage. This little piggy is one of many items I have purchased from the Goodwill store near me. I love that I get a letter from Goodwill showing how the money from my purchases and my donations has gone to help people. SCOOOOORE… 

I currently have a bowl where I throw my change at the end of each day. As I threw my change into it the other day I thought, “What am I doing?” At the very least I should have a bank. I have always loved piggy banks and knew I could make one a lot prettier than any I could buy. I could also make it to fit my color preferences-so can you! 

I wonder if any of you have had a similar experience to what I’ve been going through. There seems to be a lot of upheaval around me. My spouse, my Dad, one of my best friends, all handling very frustrating events going on in their lives. Because they are so stressed, I have been so stressed. I only mention this because I feel badly that I can’t always respond to your questions or comments these days. It’s just me working the video’s, the camera, the editing, the projects, website, and Facebook page….I read your comments and I really do try to get back to you, but weeks like these, let’s just say they are so challenging…I think everyone will all be fine, thank God there are no serious illnesses. With all of that said, I’ll let you get back to your shopping and looking forward to a new project! 

Here are the supplies you’ll need for this week’s project. I’m going to add a few links to some pretty napkins, the rest of the supplies are written exactly the way you’ll find them in a search. Since my site goes through Amazon, you won’t have to leave the site to get anything else you want.
