Address signs are one of the first things people see when they arrive at your house! Mine was a little lackluster and so I wanted to come up with something new that represented us! I was pretty bored with the generic letters that you just attach to your house or mailbox.
I headed to Hobby Lobby and grabbed some supplies and had this one done in about 20 minutes!
Here’s what you need to make your own Home Address Plaque!
- Wooden plaque – there are several different styles in the store and online to choose from.
- Wooden “Home” cutout
- Metal craft embellishments
- Spray paint
- DecoArt Acrylic paint – this assortment pack gives you every color you could think of for a great price!
- Any outdoor sealer
After putting a coat of DecoArt paint on the plaque, you’ll want to paint your letters and your “Home” with spray paint.
After your spray painted pieces are dry, you can use super glue to adhere them to your painted plaque. The gel super glue is the best!
Using hooks and eyes, attach them to the top of the painted plaque to make hanging easier.
Using DecoArt paint, freehand your flowers! Don’t worry! It’s super simple!
The flower is a simple circle! You will use other accent colors to add dimension as needed.
Here’s one flower done! Circles, swirls, dots and lines! That’s really all it is. Try your hand it at!! These are the EASIEST flowers EVER to paint!
Spray with any outdoor sealer attach some chain and it’s ready to display!!
Doesn’t that look so much better than just numbers attached to the host of porch post? I LOVE the way it turned out! This is the perfect small DIY project to try out freehand painting! I’d love to see what you make from your inspiration from this post
