My front porch is the first impression I give my guests when they visit. It’s also the place that greets me first when I come home (since I go through the front door rather than the garage). After living in the 90s Catmom Chic home for several months, my front porch was bugging me. It was blah and drab. And especially now that we were through winter, I wanted a breezy, comfortable front porch with lots of color! It took time to evolve. Transformation is work, pain, and loss. But when you allow it to happen something extraordinary and beautiful emerges! So, next on my list to update on my front porch was our house numbers. And today I am going to show you how I made this beautiful DIY wooden house number sign for less than $20!
Here’s a look at our house numbers before. See those tired, sad, lonely numbers under the light?
Yup, it was time for a change! I wanted something modern looking with a bit more contrast. So I bought some house numbers and scrounged around for some left over wood.
DIY Wooden House Number Sign
Here’s what you’ll need:
House Numbers (I used these in black)
Wood Slats/Leftover Wood (I had some leftover wood pieces from a previous project. I originally bought these at Hobby Lobby.)
Picture Hanging Hardware
Here’s How to Assemble your Sign:
Lay out your wood pieces until you find an arrangement you like
Cut your wood pieces down to size (because I’m not allowed to use power tools, I used a miter box and hand saw)
Using wood glue, adhere your pieces together (depending on how you cut your piece, you may want to glue first, then cut)
Add picture hanging hardware to the back of your wood sign
Depending on the thickness of your wood, you can use either regular screws or the provided hardware that come with your house numbers. (My wood wasn’t thick enough for the provided hardware so we drilled holes in the wood and used smaller screws)
Hang and enjoy!
All-in-all, I only spent about $20 for this project! I had the existing wood pieces, glue, screws, and saw. So I only had to purchase the house numbers. Pretty proud of how easy and cheap this project was and how great it looks on my Front Porch!
