Are you looking for an easy way to boost the curb appeal of your home? If so, try making your own house numbers using unique materials. You can explore your creative side while making it easy for visitors to spot your home from the street. Take a look at some simple ideas to try. Enjoy!

Framed House Numbers

If you're looking for a colorful way to display your house numbers, try putting them in frames. I like the idea of using a different-style frame for each number. Before buying frames, look around the house for some old frames that would be perfect for the project. Large wooden numbers are available at most hobby or craft stores. Choose some colorful paint to decorate the numbers as well as the frames. If you want a dramatic look, try painting the numbers in gold or silver. You may want to attach the frames to stakes and stick them into a large flower pot on the front porch. Or you can attach them to the wall near your front door.

LED House Numbers

LED house numbers add interest to the front of your home and help visitors to find your house at night. This project requires several steps, including cutting your house numbers out of a piece of plastic and purchasing an LED strip. But a glowing collection of house numbers can give a modern touch to the appearance of your home.

House Numbers and Artificial Grass

Adding a little green to the front of your home is easy with these DIY house numbers framed by artificial grass. If you like working with wood, you can craft your own wooden frame for your house numbers. Another option is to purchase a pre-made frame from a hardware or craft store. I suggest you purchase a mat with dark green blades of artificial grass. This dark color will serve as an attractive backdrop for your white or light-colored house numbers.

Old-Fashioned Metal Buckets to Display House Numbers

Use large metal buckets to display both your house numbers and your favorite flowers! Kids can help you with this project by painting the numbers on the buckets using a template. You can use black and white paint or go with something more colorful for your house numbers. This is a great option if you like changing your flower arrangements every few months.

House Numbers Fashioned Out of Nails

If you want house numbers with an industrial look, then this may be the option for you. You'll need to make a template for each of your house numbers to serve as a guide as you put up the nails. You can get creative with this project by using nails of different sizes and colors. Be sure to put some thought into where you want you want to place your house numbers before putting in the first nail.

I hope making your own house numbers inspires you to dress up the front of your home even more. Thanks for reading! - Alan
