Crafts from coins: metal art (20 photos)


A hand-made thing radiates a special energy, because the master's soul is embedded in it, its joy from creative work, and coins made of coins also have the magical property of attracting money. However, not only therefore pennies often become part of hand-made compositions.



Advantages of coins, as material for crafts:

  • Accessibility (there is a trifle in every home);
  • Durability of metal products (labor is not wasted);
  • The correct round shape facilitates the manufacture of handicrafts;
  • The presence of several diameters expands the possibilities of use (fulfillment of plans);
  • A variety of drawings (embossing) and the choice of color (yellow and white).

The proposed ideas of "monetary creativity" are easy to implement. You just need to stock up on the necessary amount of stuff.

The simplest crafts require a glue gun, a base object and a sufficient amount of small things. The method of manufacture is simple: a clean surface is consistently pasted over with coins.

Choosing coins of different denominations, you can achieve the filling of the entire area without gaps. Finishing elements can be positioned flat or at an angle (i.e., glue the coin with an edge).

Such crafts are good because you do not need to drill and bend or cut metal.



Beautiful crafts from coins with their own hands:

  • Vase or flowerpots;
  • Photo frame;
  • Souvenir "cash bottle";
  • Hovering cup; cash tap;
  • Decor for furniture;
  • Topiary (horseshoe of happiness, hearts, balls).

Fantasy masters are not limited to simple pasting of finished objects. Trifle to become a full-fledged "building material"! Coins are laid one on another, forming cylinders. Then from the coin columns erected walls. In this way, made crafts in the form of a ship, castle, box.

Skilled craftsmen cover the coins with spray paint (silver or gold) and then with acrylic varnish in several layers. Such a thing is not difficult to care for. It can be wiped with a damp cloth.

How to achieve a flat surface? If you are confused by the gaps between the pennies, they can be filled with silicone. And it is not necessary to use a transparent composition.



Photo frame

We choose the cardboard more tightly and cut out a frame of the desired shape from it. The width of the frame should not be too large (just a little larger than the diameter of the coins) so that the product does not turn out to be too heavy.

Then stick a penny. At this point everyone acts as fantasy suggests. You can glue only a few coins in the corners or fill the entire surface with coins, choose absolutely identical in size and color of the coin or make patterns of different elements.

The photo is placed on the back of the frame. For the convenience of changing the picture, you can glue the cardboard guides for the photo card.

Coins have long been decorated with clothes, made of them jewelry, talismans. And the money in the product did not lose their purchasing power. Bracelet or monisto could be exchanged for food.

Modern craftsmen drill holes in coins, connect them with wires, forming chains (sometimes in several tiers). From the coins with a hole you can make a pendant, earrings, bracelet. In the latter case, pennies can be attached to a chain by small rings of thin wire or tied together with a weave of lace.

The ring is somewhat more difficult to make, but the work of the master is afraid, so nothing is impossible for the handy man.



Money Tree

Popular trees of coins have long been money trees. This symbol of wealth serves as a good gift or a good interior decoration.

For work you will need:

  • Kopecks (it is better to use elements of the minimum diameter, with a par value of 1 or 10 kopecks);
  • Thin wire;
  • Stand;
  • Thick wire or twigs of a real tree;
  • Acrylic paints;
  • Plasticine or putty;
  • Instruments.

The basis for the panel can serve as a rectangular sheet of plywood or fiberboard. This way of storing memorabilia about traveling is much more convenient and effective than holding "trophies" in bulk.

Making the panel in the form of three-dimensional letters is easy. We cut out symbols from plywood or cardboard (you can use dense foam or other convenient material) and glue the coins of various denominations and sizes (currency of different countries) into droplets of hot glue.



Coin Falls

Inexhaustible cash flow - who will refuse it? You can only dream about it or admire the symbol of abundance, if it is presented to you.
