Pennies are pretty much useless currency in this day and age. What can they really buy you? But maybe we're looking at it all wrong...instead of what they can buy you, how about what can they make you?

If you're one to toss your pennies in the change plate at your local coffee shop or overlook a one-center on the ground, you should take a gander at these cool projects. All of them take just a few pennies to make...with epic end results.

1. First things first, if you want to clean some old pennies, just grab some salt and white vinegar.

4. Mark memorable dates with pennies in a frame.

5. These penny spinners are fun for your kids.

6. Make an intricate, modern necklace.
