Part of having a garden space is also recognizing that curb appeal adds to the value of that space… in other words, you want to show off your garden stuff to the world going by! One of the greatest ways to enhance your garden is to up the ante on the style factor for your home and garden curb appeal. Long story short, it’s time to replace those outdated house numbers! We have a bunch of great tutorials on DIY house numbers for you.
Making this a project instead of running down to the hardware store pays off in two ways. First, you don’t spend $20 a number! Second, you get something that represents your family and it’s personality, not just some generic vinyl letters. (Ick!!!) So here are TGG’s top choices for DIY house number signs for you to try this weekend!
Grassy address plaque
Make this fresh and fun Palm Springs inspired house numbers sign from ‘Popsugar‘. Did you ever think to make an DIY address plaque with grass?

This DIY house number sign from ‘Shades of Blue‘ is also a planter! Love the idea of making an address sign into a sort of window box too.

Modern house numbers on grooved wood sign
Make this modern house number sign with this tutorial from ‘Little House of Four‘. We love the texture she created on the sign itself, instead of just placing the house numbers on a flat board.

DIY acrylic house number plaque
We love this more contemporary frosted glass looking house number idea. You can find the tutorial at ‘Instructables‘, and it’s pretty easy! Note: You can find the Lexan (acrylic sheet) at most home improvement stores, and they will cut it for you if necessary.
