Before & After: Lucky Penny Vase

- Before & After, Home & Garden

A vase is perfect though. You can pick one up for really cheap at a thrift store and then run by the bank for a couple rolls of nice shiny new pennies. Just think of the designs that could be made or the other simple items that could be used.


First I spray painted the vase with black and let dry. Then I found all the pennies we had in the house and started glueing them on. I used a glue gun and started at the top of the vase. I didn’t worry about the direction of the penny or what side I used (or if they were Canadian or US) just keep glueing, row after row. I ran out of pennies at the bottom, I hunted everywhere for more but when stores aren’t giving out pennies any more it was harder to find more. And now when it’s up on the bookshelf you can’t see the bottom anyway.


This is just fabulous. I love the color of pennies. Copper is so my color. This is easy to make and looks stunning too.


The flowers inside are from the dollar store and like the pop of colour they bring. The other bottles I’ve been meaning to do something to as well but for now the vase is the star of the show.
