I saw this fun DIY house numbers sign by Ken Wingard on Home & Family, which airs weekdays at 10 am on the Hallmark Channel. I think this DIY project adds so much curb appeal and it is pretty quick and easy to do. I was given permission to share the DIY house numbers sign tutorial with you here.
DIY House Numbers Sign Tutorial
DIY House Numbers Supplies:
- House numbers
- Paint sticks
- 8oz Original Gorilla Glue (affiliate link)
- Pre-cut plywood
DIY House Numbers Step by Step Directions:
1) Select nice big house numbers that can be easily seen from the street, say 3 or 4 inches in height. Then lay the house numbers out vertically and allow a paint stick space between each house number. Also allow the same amount of blank space in paint sticks above and below the numbers. Measure that total vertical distance and this will be the height you need to have the plywood cut to match. You will want to have a blank space on each side of your numbers as well about the size of a number. So measure that distance for your width of the plywood. The plywood will be the back of your house numbers sign that you don’t see but that holds it all together.
2) Cut your paint sticks to be 1/2” wider than your plywood.
3) Sand the edges and stain the paint sticks.
4) Using Gorilla glue (100% Waterproof), attach the paint sticks to the plywood board.
5) Give the entire piece a coat of polyurethane or marine varnish.
6) Attach house numbers as per house number instructions.
6) Hang your house numbers sign by your door and enjoy the added curb appeal!
