Piggy (coin/money) banks

wynativeOctober 28, 2011

I am taking a ceramics class and am making a Ladybug coin bank for my granddaughter. Does anyone know how big to make the plug hole? and also where I could find a plug?

Thanks,

Marie

Corks are available at wine making stores. Make the plug hole just a tiny bit bigger than the biggest part of the cork (top)
Make sure to make the hole big enough to get the largest coins out. Also, sometimes the corks stick out of the hole, so make the feet of your piggy accordingly.
