DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including this terrific little house number sign. Only problem? Those are not my house numbers; they are hers. {insert side-eye} Oh well, c’est la vie. I can easily make one for myself, I just need the plaque size perfect for my home.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign Notes:

• Tea stain: you can use any black tea to form this tea stain. Lipton was used as it gives a reddish-hue. If you do not want a reddish-hue, avoid Lipton tea.

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• Your plaque may be made of inferior grade wood. While that is nice for a farmhouse project – adding imperfections – it may require a second coat of tea staining, varnishing, etc. Wait at least 12 hours before applying a second coat. It can take that long for the tea and the vinegar solutions to develop and darken.

• Bleeding may also occur when inferior wood is used. If it bothers you a lot, try and hide any bleeding using the numbers or welcome sign. Remember that higher quality wood is less likely to bleed.

• Make certain whatever glue you use will dry clear, or use goop.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse House Numbers Sign can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign Instructions:

• 24 hours before making this craft, prepare a vinegar solution. In a small jar, fill ¾ of the way to the top and insert a steel wool pad. Allow to sit for 24 hours uncovered.
• Make the tea stain at the same time: 6 tea bags per 1 cup of water, and allow to steep overnight. This is strong tea!
• 24 hours after making your tea stain and vinegar solution, cover a work surface against spills or stains.
• Place your wooden plaque down on the covered surface, and tea stain the entire plaque, including the sides. Do not worry about any distressing – you want some distressing as it adds charm to the finished piece.

• Allow plaque to dry completely.

• If applying a second coat, allow the first coat to dry completely. Remember that inferior wood will suck up the varnish. However, a second coat will also give a smoother finish (which may or may not be desirable to you).

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath

Find your pot o’ gold on this charming St. Patrick’s Day door décor wreath! This wreath is meant to be abundant, but not complete around the straw wreath. You, of course, can do what you like. If you do not want any exposed straw, I’d suggest making the balls come up both sides of the wreath (duplicating each side), and then placing the shamrocks and coins at the top.


Like so many crafts this is simply an idea for you to begin with and expand upon to make your own. You can follow my steps exactly, or go off in your own direction.

Notes:

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath craft can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• Take the straw wreath outside to unwrap it, and then give it a good shake outdoors! This will remove the loose straw, and keep your house tidy.

• Christmas bulbs were used on this craft – because I am cheap. Different textures, and various shades make for wonderful depth and juxposition of colors and textures. You can use craft balls in different shades of gold and green, but adhering them to the wreath may be a bit tricky.

• Quilter t-pins + hot glue were used to attach the bulbs. You could also use the floral picks with the wire at the end, or you could try and use only hot glue, but it may be a bit difficult.

• Instead of felt shamrocks, you could cut out paper ones – providing your wreath is not expoded to the elements.

• You could also use pot o’ gold felt cutouts.

• You can purchase the “gold coins” at the dollar store for a buck, or your favorite craft store for more.

• Layer the baubles (balls):
• Insert a quilting pin into the hanger portion of your bulb (at the top of the ornament cap).
• Insert the pin into the straw wreath, then, dab a dot of hot glue under the ball to more firmly affix it in place.
• Note: the pin is going to anchor across the ball wire hanger and you want to push that quiting pin in sideways to hide the ornament cap (hanger and pin) in the wreath and away from the exterior of the finished wreath product.
• Proceed to attach more bulbs in the same manner. Pay attention to size, texture, and holes. If you want to place some smaller bulbs on top of the larger wreath-adhered bulbs, you can hot glue them to the existing bulbs, and hide those holes. 12 bulbs were used in total on this wreath. You can use more or less according to your personal taste and preferences.
• Once you are finished with your bulbs, take a step back and make certain they are as complete as you would like, and firmly adhered to the wreath.

Wooden Box Bird’s Nest Floral Arrangement

Wooden Box Bird's Nest Floral Arrangement. This adorable little birdie will look so sweet on a side table, fireplace mantel, or as part of a centerpiece! Use an old wooden box (this one is a cigar box), a bird and its nest, and in about 15 minutes you will have an unusual, but lovely, floral piece perfect in any décor!

Wooden Box Bird’s Nest Floral Arrangement

This is a sweet, easy little craft that takes about 15 minutes to make. This is a little birdy nesting in the cigar box. Since it is winter, we went with a winter theme. You could update to a fall or spring theme with a different bird (less sparkly), non-evergreen floral, or just evergreen floral that does not have any embellishments.


Notes:

• You can purchase any of the items for this craft that you may not have on hand at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• You can use an old cigar box, or purchase a new one at a craft store. The box also does not specifically have to be a “cigar box”, that is just what we had on hand so used it. You can use any small wooden box with a lid (or without a lid!) that you may have on hand.

• This cigar box is finished. You can also buy unfinished wooden boxes and paint it any color you like, or finish it with a polyurethane.

• This cigar box does not have brackets. The cigar box will stay open once the bird and floral have been inserted. Also note it will never close once the floral foam, bird, and floral have been inserted.

• This is an excellent craft for a small space, or as part of a centerpiece.

• This cigar box craft is versatile – it works in farmhouse décor, mission décor or rustic setting! Use this in a family room, kitchen, or enclosed porch – as I said, it fits in so many styles and places.
