Well, I planted my Petunias and my Geraniums are blooming so I’ve got flowers on the brain. Putting together a nice flower arrangement is something people pay big money for…it can also add new life to a space, so if you know how to do it right, you’ve got skills .

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for spring! We’ve had really nice weather here recently (60′s and 70′s) but I think, soon, we’re going to get a touch of this winter storm that’s hit every other surrounding state. Errr… Regardless, I’m thinking Spring; bright, sunny, and cheery… and even though this project doesn’t necessarily have a season, it can brighten-up the exterior of a home quite nicely.
1. Select a font from your computer. Enlarge and print the numbers in various sizes to see which works best on your planter.
2. Using a printer and cardstock, print the numbers in desired size, on a single sheet if they fit. Make a stencil by cutting out the numbers with a craft knife.
3. If the numbers were printed separately, tape stencils together, spacing numbers about 3/4 inch apart. Use masking tape to adhere stencil to planter.
4. Choose acrylic paint in a color that stands out from the planter. Use a sponge or a stencil brush to dab paint into stencil. Let dry, and remove stencil.
