I'm sure you've seen Vone Inspired's Lucky Penny Vase. It's taken Pinterest by storm!
Copper seems to be the"in" color tone, judging by the response to both the penny vase and these gorgeous DIY Copper Dipped Vases by homeyohmy.
I wasn't immediately a fan of the Lucky Penny Vase. Seemed a bit too shiny at first. Then it grew on me and now I love it! But I still prefer a bit more subdued tone.
Here's my version.
(With a name like Muslin & Merlot, it's safe to assume that there's an empty wine bottle somewhere in the house.)
Upcycled wine bottle and white-rubbed pennies:
The pennies, unpainted, were too shiny. The pennies, painted, seemed a bit boring. Now it's just right.
You will need:
Dark colored wine bottle
Skein of white embroidery floss
Something decorative to put in the bottle!
1. Clean the bottle. Remove labels.
2. Use the glue gun to glue pennies to the bottle. Space closely. Leave the bottom inch of the bottle penniless (see what I did there? so punny!).
3. Keep gluing pennies until the bottle starts curving inward.
7. Glue one end of the embroidery skein to the back top rim of the bottle. Wind it around the neck of the bottle to create the look of a coil.
8. Glue the other end to the back of the bottle, in the space between pennies.
9. You've made a gorgeous penny vase. Now put some stuff in it! I found these white branches on clearance at Michael's.
PARTY TIME! Show these links some linky love! Lots of great crafts and crafters!
