Paint and Planters

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.

House numbers on planters!

Here are the steps according to Martha… 


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. 

I’ve tried making a stencil on my own before and it can be difficult.  If you’d rather purchase a stencil and use it on a planter–it would definitely still be cute!

What’s your number?
