For this project, you will need:
-- Matte black spray paint
-- Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
You can find the majority of these items at a craft store.
Paint the vase black
Place the vase on some scrap paper and spray the vase black in a well-ventilated area or outside. You may need to do a few coats of paint, depending on the print that is underneath the paint. Make sure you allow the paint to completely dry in between each coat of paint.
Glue on pennies
Use the hot-glue gun to glue on the pennies all over the vase, as shown in the picture above. Use caution when using the hot-glue gun — it can be incredibly dangerous. Allow the glue to dry and cool completely before using.
