I have a really fun and simple way of displaying your address number outside your home! Here is how mine turned out…
How fun is that??
This is super easy to make! I found all of the supplies, including my flowers at Lowe’s!
Let’s get started!
Start with a 4x4x8 piece of wood from Lowe’s. These are about $10 a piece and sometimes I have the guys at the hardware store cut mine for me to make it easier to carry and get home. Plus… It saves me a step 😉 My post is 48″ long. A small handsaw will cut it in half easily too! Just takes a little elbow grease 😉 One post will make 2 of these signs, so you may want to make one with a friend, as a gift or make a water hose holder!
You will also need 2 other pieces of wood. I was able to use scraps for mine.
Next, I used my drill to put a screw through both pieces and into my post like this. I also used Gorilla Wood Glue in between each piece.
Now for the finial!
I find these on the wood aisle at Lowe’s next to dowels.
Drill a small hole and put it on the top like this!
Now I gave the whole thing a coat of my very fav…
Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut
And to protect the finish I added 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Spar Varnish after the stain dried!
My final step was adding the numbers and plant hook! I found these cuties at Lowe’s for about $4 a piece. They had other finishes as well. The plant hook is also from Lowe’s. It was around $5 in the garden section… Woohoo!
I lined them up and attached them to the post using the screws that came with them… Easy peasy!
I dug an 18″ hole in the ground to put my post and then added a cute planter from Lowe’s! I filled mine with Sun Coleus and sweet potato vine… LOVE!
And here is how she turned out…
What do you think?? I LOVE it! It makes me happy when I drive up to my house
I hope you love it too!
I would LOVE for you to share this and PIN it with your peeps below!!
Have an awesome day and let me know if you have any questions!
