Let’s dive straight into making some cute House Number Pots. I purchased these mint coloured pots some time ago from Kmart to add a bit of colour to our front porch but I just couldn’t help myself and had to add a bit of Raggedy Bits to the pots and decided to paint our house number onto them!
I have loved the idea of having some pots with our house number on them and thought that these would be perfect as they had a flat surface on them.
So I printed out our house numbers using my inkjet printer and traced them onto the surface of the pots using carbon paper and a stylus.
I then mixed Lamp(Black) Americana Deco Art paint with some glass medium which you can find at any hobby shop like spotlight or Lincraft. Using my number 2 round brush I hand painted the numbers onto the pots using the the carbon lines as a guide. I then sprayed the finished pots with several coats of spray varnish. As they are going to get wet due to watering I made sure that I used an out door spray varnish.
I then go busy putting some pretty cottage flowers into the pots and placed them on top of a old upside down coal bucket.
Further to my little front porch make over I found these gorgeous rusty angels (yes I know WAAAAAY to early for Christmas but I couldn’t help myself!! They were just way to cute to leave behind!!) on my latest treasure hunt and they were perfect to display my sweet Tinkered Tin Cans

I love being in the garden creating a special place to be when things are a little topsy turvey in my life. It always clams me and allows me to sort things out in my head!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
