We just got our house painted and somewhere in the process we lost our home address numbers. They were vinyl sticky on things that were ugly with a capital U. I wasn’t sad to see them disappear. The painters even said that they could put them back up and I think they could tell by the look on my face that I was not all that excited about it, and they never came back… Oh well…being a crafty inventive kind I got around to making my own and if you are so inclined you can to. Here is a short tutorial on how to make your own house numbers!
House & Home Bunting Tutorial
I used heavy canvas, they are outside and need to hold up… We have a four digit number so I cut four triangles… Figure out how big & how many you need? Do you want them to be subtle or seen from a distance?
I figured out the length I needed for the top trim plus some, folded it in half, marked with a pin. Then Pinned one triangle to either side so that it would be centered when hung.
Then hung… no-one is going to miss my house. I might play around with the placement but for now this will do… I lost a glass of champagne in the process of hanging.
Come back Next week and I will show you some stencil ideas!
