numbers on a plaque ... so easy!

This craft is very easy because all you need is numbers from your Home Depot and a plaque from your accessory store. Mine is rod Works HERE.

First, get the number you want, lucky number, house number...
Then, go to the store with the letters and choose a picture. This  red one and butterflies themed is a metal one. I you want to place it outside. A metal one is great. Just think a wood one with weather over time (i like it that way).
Make sure the letters fit and when placed on the picture they look good.
Then at home, Hot glue your letters on the picture.
Hang it outside, place it at the window or display in your house. I LOVE THIS!!! All from my little brain :)



Outdoor, indoor, house number sign!

My linking party is on my side bar by days of Parties.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!
The Plaque ( a metal one ) is very ingenious for outdoors.
Love the swirling red designs and the large number 90.


Hmm,.... I wonder where I can find one here in the Northeast shops.
