Do you have spare change lying around? Maybe a jar of change sitting on your dresser simply collecting dust. Have you ever thought about turning your loose change into amazing coin art? These very creative artists took a whole bunch of coins and made some pretty cool things with them. These pieces of art take a long time to accomplish and a lot of patience. The results are absolutely stunning and are sure to turn heads. I’ve gotta say, I really want to try creating one of the easier floor or wall pieces. Talk about some awesome inspiration.

The web is full of things you can do with your spare change (other than spend it.) There are even tutorials on how to clean it. And just in case you didn’t know, there are more germs on a coin or dollar bill than most toilet seats. That being said, you might want to give your coins a good cleaning before using them for things other than getting a drink from the soda machine.
