20 Amazing DIY Projects You Can Do With Old Pennies

We all remember the old adage, “see a penny, pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck.” And it’s not very difficult to find a penny on the ground: There are more pennies in circulation in the United States than any other coin. They are also the only coin that is made out of copper (thought they used to be made from gold up until around 1793.) Though there have been talks that the U.S. mint will eventually get rid of the virtually valueless penny, it’s hard to imagine having a pocket full of change with no pennies in sight.

These DIY projects seem to have figured out a way to immortalize the penny. Instead of keeping your pennies forgotten at the bottom of a change jar or purse, why not turn them into something interesting? Check out these adorable project ideas below – we wonder how much #7 is actually worth.
