So you know all those pennies you have lying around that seem completely worthless? Yes, I have plenty of those lying around my apartment too, and this project gives you a great way to use those and turn them into something classy to decorate your living space! This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Bob Vila.
For this project, you will need:
-- Matte black spray paint
-- Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
You can find the majority of these items at a craft store.
Paint the vase black
Place the vase on some scrap paper and spray the vase black in a well-ventilated area or outside. You may need to do a few coats of paint, depending on the print that is underneath the paint. Make sure you allow the paint to completely dry in between each coat of paint.
Glue on pennies
Use the hot-glue gun to glue on the pennies all over the vase, as shown in the picture above. Use caution when using the hot-glue gun — it can be incredibly dangerous. Allow the glue to dry and cool completely before using.
Fill the penny vase with some flowers and enjoy!
