I have a fun DIY project for you today! When we bought our house it didn’t have any house numbers. After living here for some time when I would have deliveries arrive or trying to sell something on Facebook Marketplace so many people would be confused it was the right house or not. This simple DIY project is a quick way to add curb appeal to your home. Made from an inexpensive cedar fence picket and house numbers, all you will also need is a saw, hammer and some nails to build!
1 Cedar Fence picket, 5-1/2″ wide x 72″ long (can be dog eared)
6″ House numbers
Screws for attaching to an exterior wall (fastener type will depend on your siding/wall type)
1 1/4 inch Finishing nails
Stain (Color of your choice)
Soil and plants (of course!)
Or fake plants!
1 – cedar fence post @ 36″ long – back – can be adjusted to fit your house numbers’ height
3 – cedar fence posts @ 4-3/4″ long – bottom and sides
1 – cedar fence post @ 7″ – cut to fit, front piece
Stain the cedar fence picket
Make cuts to the cedar fence post
Place a small amount of glue on the bottom of the back.
Using a brad nailer and 1-1/4″ galvanized nails, attach the bottom to the back. You could also use exterior wood screws, 1-1/2″ to 2″ long.
Glue and nail sides to both bottom and back.
Cut the front piece to fit and nail to the sides and bottom.
Attach house numbers to the back piece as instructed by house number packaging.
Drill holes in the bottom of the planter box with drill bits.
Hang planter on an exterior wall.
