Easy DIY House Number Sign

Easy DIY House Number Sign

The numbers on our house were looking pretty rough. Not only was the sign ugly, the paint was chipping, the wood was split in places, and it was only loosely attached to the house. We needed something fresh and new to boost our curb appeal.

To make a new sign I purchased/gathered the following supplies:

  • A scrap of wood
  • Saw
  • Sandpaper
  • White semi-gloss paint (I used the end of a can)
  • Polyurethane
  • House numbers
  • Super glue
  • Double-sided outdoor mounting tape

Step 1: I cut the scrap wood to fit the height and width of our 4-digit house number, sanded the edges and painted the front and sides with white semi-gloss.

Step 2: The next day, I applied some polyurethane to coat and seal the paint. Our entryway is covered so I wasn’t too worried about making the sign completely weather resistant.

Step 3: I super glued the numbers onto the wood. Getting the numbers straight and spaced evenly was the tricky part since super glue dries quickly, but I think I got them in the right place.

Step 4: I used double-sided outdoor mounting tape (about three strips total) to secure the number sign to our brick house. The tape is really strong and supposed to be weather resistant and this was much easier than trying to screw the board into the wall. So far, it’s hanging very securely.

I had some of the supplies already, but bought the numbers, polyurethane, super glue and mounting tape and spent about $50, with supplies leftover for future projects. I’m very happy with the transformation!
