The Days of Our Lives

This idea originally came from a keychain I saw on Pinterest. I loved the idea of using pennies from significant years as some sort of decor. Since I didn't want a keychain, I decided on this wall hanging. One penny for each of the milestones in our lives (so far).

It took a little bit of effort to find a penny for each year and to find the variance on the oldness/newness of the copper colors that I wanted.


And, unrelated, but here's a cute picture I took this morning at the park - mama and baby duck. Happy Mother's Day!

Oh man, I LOVE the penny idea! I think I might copy it. Or at least Pin it! And that pic of the ducks could be a postcard or a greeting card or something! Do you have an etsy shop?

Love this idea so clever. How did you assemble it just hot glue it on special paper? Instructions please and thank you

Hello - Do you know of anyone who makes these?

Second the question on assembly - any tips for what worked/didn't work? Heavy cardstock and hot glue? Covered cardboard?

Thanks!
