One Cent Doesn't Seem Like Much, Until You See These 19 Penny Crafts. #11 Is Just Stunning

They say that finding a penny heads up is good luck, but overall, the currency has fallen out of vogue. While there used to be all sorts of candy, knick-knacks and even movie showings for the low price of one cent, that is far from the case today. In fact, creating a new penny costs about two and a half cents, making the penny not only inconvenient but utterly worthless.

However, if you have an overflowing change jar, don’t fear. We’ve found 19 D.I.Y.s that will shine up your space. All they take is a little bit of sense and a handful of cents.
