It’s A LOT cheaper to make your own wooden nickels than it is to have them made. Most companies on the net have a min. order of 500 and can cost about 50 cents each to make. With this instructable you can make start making your own coins for less than $10 worth of supplies, then after that make them for less than 20 cents a piece.
Computer & printer or memory device
Laser photo copy (about 9 cents at your local copy shop)
Non poly nylon paintbrush (sometimes you have these laying around, or about $1)
Regular paintbrush or foam brush (sometimes you have these laying around, or less than $1)
Wooden disk (about $2-$3 at Michaels or Joanns)
Glass jar with a lid (you might have 1 laying around, or $1 at Joanns)
Acetone NOT NAIL POLISH REMOVER ($2.50 at Wal-mart)
Polyurethane (clear coat) or clear nail polish (Polyurethane $3-$5, clear nail polish $1)
I use paint when making my coins, but any photo shop program will do.
