      @Stacy Tucker Cool idea for the coins from your dad in his travels. Coin Art - foreign coin collection

    • Kayleen Shippy

      Glue all those collected foreign coins onto the back of a frame. Either hang it or add handles & turn it into a serving tray. Elmer's Glue-All works best on each coin and let them set for a good while before hanging. Idea from Turning Stones Blog: Coin Art.

    Coin Art- for all the foreign coins


    My dad showed me how to do this & I wear mine with my wedding band. It's cool, because the wording on the edge of the coin ends up in the middle of the ring! Do you have a quarter from 1964 or before? If you do, it is made of silver. You can turn that coin into a nice silver band using a spoon, a drill, and a metal file. (And no, it's not illegal.)

    should've done this!

    I've saved keys to do this, now i just need to do it.

    Very easy way to create some fun 3D art

    Use canvas, apply stickers, decal, etc., and spray paint. Remove decals and hang white lights behind it. I might outline or hang colored lights to add some color during the day
