- Papier mache or wooden letters
- Copper acrylic paint & foam brush
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Pennies (about $3 worth)
- Mod Podge (optional)
Begin by painting your purchased letters copper with copper, acrylic paint.
Note: If your letters are papier mache or unfinished wood, one coat should do fine.
Once your letters are dry, begin to add your pennies using a hot glue gun.
While gluing, try to space them so you don’t have any large gaps. Alternating pennies with different layers will give the piece added dimension.
Option: Add a layer of glossy Mod Podge if you want them to shine.Prop your lucky penny letters on your mantle for an eye-catching display.
