When I was cleaning the front porch off this spring, I felt like it needed a little something new. Our house numbers have been hanging for more years than I would like to admit. I figured that was a good place to start! So, with a little Mod Podge and paper I made these fun monogram DIY house numbers to hang by our front door.
Supplies needed to make your own monogram DIY house numbers:
- Outdoor Mod Podge
- Acrylic Craft Paint in your choice of color (I used blue)
- Patterned Paper (I used a black and cream polka dot)
- 12″ Wood Letter
- Small 1.5 inch Wood Numbers
- Foam Sponge Brush
- Sand-it Gadget
- Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad
- Hot Glue Gun
- Picture Hanger Hardware
The first thing you will want to do is prepare your wooden monogram. I recycled one that I already had. It was painted black previously. Paint your letter to match the pattern paper of your choice. Then using Mod Podge as the adhesive, cover your monogram letter with patterned paper. DO NOT seal the top of the patterned paper with Mod Podge. We will do that later.
After my letters were painted, and the paint was dry, I sanded them. I decided to make the letters look distressed because they were going to be hanging outside- if the paint got worn and chipped, it would look like it was on purpose. 🙂
Using a hot glue gun, adhere the numbers to your monogram letter.
