Home decor that costs a few cents!

The other day I was cleaning out old drawers and stumbled upon a jar of one and two cent pieces... remember those! Since this old currency is now useless, I didn't want to throw it away but had no idea what to do with it. How's this idea for vamping up an old vase using cent pieces.

 

All you need for this project is an old vase, or any container for that matter, a glue gun and old currency. You can leave the currency as is, or use Brasso to polish it to a high shine.

The process is simple... Use a hot glue gun to secure the old currency onto the vase or container. I do recommend that you do a test fit before you secure the cents in place, just to make sure they fit evenly around the circumference, otherwise you may need to space them out a bit more.
