Hi, does anyone know where I could find plans for making a whimsical owl bank for my little Grand daughter. Would like to design one myself, but feel that I don’t have the artistic ability. Any help would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

I have made coin banks like you discribed of rabbits, ducks or even a mouse. I got the designs/art work from coloring books or “image searches” on the internet.

Thank you Jim, those look really neat. I really like the owl you sent. Hopefully can get started on this soon. Thanks again.

I include a photo of a boot bank that shows the way I make the bottom of the bank removable to access the coins.

I have a book about making banks, I will look and see if there’s any owl plans in it.

Hi; I sent you a message but haven’t had a reply…my book does have an owl plan in it if you’re interested.

Have your say...
