Unfortunately what should have been a quick and easy project has been neither of those things because glue and I were not getting along. First I tried regular white glue, only to find that my pennies fell off. It annoyed me so I put it away with the intention of coming back to it.
Several months later I decided to try again. Over the course of a couple days I unsuccessfully tried Gorilla Glue (didn't stick), hot glue gun (bumped up too much), and even crazy glue (giant mess!). Once again, I was frustrated by my lack of success so I put it away for later.

Another several months passed and I decided to try again. This time I used sticky dots (the kind used for scrapbooking) to attach the pennies. It has been a couple days so far and the pennies are still attached so I'm optimistic.
I plan on making a larger one but want to wait and see how this one holds up. Normally I don't want to share something I'm not sure will last but I'm looking for some advice. If the sticky dots don't hold (I'll let you know), what would you try to make the pennies stick?
