When it comes to saving cash, we all know that every little helps – and that can include saving your spare change, hiding it away in a jam jar for a rainy day! In just a few short steps, we will bring this memorable image to life – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by taking a black pen, and drawing a long, thin oval shape at the top of your page.
Just below this, add a long, thin shape – almost like a stretched or flattened crescent moon.
Join these two shapes together with short vertical lines at either end.
Then, bring two curved lines down from either side, curving out and down towards the bottom of the page. Join these at the bottom with a curved horizontal line.
Grab a black fineliner pen, and draw a wide oval shape in the center of the jar…
Then add another line around this, creating a “ring”.
Add another line between the top and bottom lines, at the top of the ring…
And then add a vertical wiggly line down the center of this section.
Continue the line up on the other side to create a small dollar sign shape…
And complete the dollar sign by adding a vertical stem.
Bring two short, vertical lines down from the sides of the oval…
And connect these at the bottom with a curve to create your penny.
Next, add another ring below this one, slightly to the right.
Add the bottom of a dollar sign poking out from underneath the top penny…
And then add the lines to the sides and bottom to complete the penny.
Repeat this with another example underneath, starting with the ring at the top and the right-hand line…
Before bringing a line across the bottom and up on the left.
Add the bottom of a dollar sign peeking out of the bottom.
Now, grab an orange pen, and use this to add color to the tops of each of the pennies.
Take an orange pen and a ruler, and draw a series of straight, vertical lines down the sides of each of the pennies.
Grab a yellow pencil, and fill in the sides and top ring of each penny…
And then use a pale orange pencil or pale orange crayon to lightly shade in the background.
Use a gray pencil to add a faint vertical line running down the side of the lid, and then following the curve of the jar.
Shade in everything to the right of this with the gray.
Then add the same gray shade to the lid…
And add a shadow underneath the stack of pennies.
And voila! Your very own penny jar, just waiting to be filled and spent on plenty of delicious treats!
