5-minute/1-month Project from Pinterest for Anyone With Coins in Their Pocket

So which is it?  Five minutes or One month?

Do you have magnets and a hot glue gun with glue sticks... that you can find in less than 5 minutes?  Then 5 minutes.

If you have to order parts, like I did with the magnets, then one month.  


A hot glue gun, with glue sticks. It's not any good without the glue sticks, trust me.  Also, if you're like me living in a place weird plugs and 220V power, a transformer is quite important so you don't explode the hot glue gun and give yourself 3rd degree burns.


Magnets.  I used 1/2 inch magnets so that they'd fit on most coins.  If you're going all big coins, then bigger magnets are fine, and if you're going all tiny coins, smaller ones would be better.


A big box of random coins.  You have one, you know you do.  How about that collection of state specific quarters nicely tucked away, wouldn't it be great to see them?  How about those coins from Europe before the Euro came into play?  Lived in a bunch of remote places?  Dump them all out and find your favorites.


The hard part is picking which side to face out.  I figured numbers weren't all that important and the face sides were usually more interesting, so that's what I went with.  Place a drop of hot glue in the middle of the coin, press in your magnet, and it's done.


Sprinkle them on your fridge around your travel photos and reminders to fill the ice cube trays.

Now what to do with the other 300 coins?  Ideas?
