1. Metal And Wood Modern Numbers
This house number display mixes metal and wood to give it a modern yet rustic look. The backing for the numbers is made from paint stir sticks, which you can get for free at most home improvement stores. Just paint the sticks and attach them to a larger board for support. Then just add your metal numbers and you have a wonderful modern display with a country look.
2. Colorful Mosaic Plaque Display
I love the colors in this plaque and it has such a wonderfully vintage look to it. You can pick this one up on Etsy for around $75 if you prefer not to do it yourself. If you prefer to DIY your project, you’ll need a strip of concrete for the backing, colored glass for the mosaic and then your numbers and you could do those in just about any material.

3. DIY Living Number Display
I love the idea of having a living house number display. This one isn’t actually living – you use faux grass to create it – but it certainly looks like real grass. You’ll need to build a small shadow box to hold the grass and your house numbers. Once done, just glue in the grass and glue your numbers on top. It’s an easy project and one that has so much character.
4. Milk Can Turned Address Marker
If you’re looking for something really unique, and really rustic, you can turn an old milk can into a beautiful address marker. You can typically find these milk cans at thrift stores or flea markets and they’re not terribly expensive. Even if you find an old rusted one, you can clean it up and paint your house number on it. Then just display on the front porch and you’re all set.
5. Rustic Cottage Rope Numbers
If you’re looking to create that coastal vibe, or you’re lucky enough to actually live at the coast, these rope numbers would be perfect. You can create the numbers from rope and attach them to a distressed board or buy wooden or metal numbers and
just wrap the rope around them to make it easier – then attach to an old board that you’ve painted white and sanded to give it that great distressed look.
6. Contemporary Frosted House Number Display
This DIY contemporary house number display is pretty easy to make and it looks really professional. You’ll need a sheet of Lexan which you can get at most home improvement stores. The Lexan is frosted, which makes it a wonderful backdrop against the black numbers. If you prefer a more modern look outside your home, this is the perfect number display.
7. DIY Chevron Number Monogram
I love the idea of incorporating a monogram with your street numbers. You can buy these large wooden letters at any craft store, or make one yourself. Then just paint it in this bright chevron design and add your numbers in a contrasting color. You use spray paint to create the design, which makes it fast and easy and you can pick up all of these supplies at any home improvement store – and they’re not at all expensive.
8. Easy DIY Patio Stone Number Display
Sometimes the simplest ideas are just right there in front of you. If you have a few leftover patio stones or concrete squares, you can turn those into amazing house number displays. If you already have the stones this one isn’t going to cost you anything. You just paint, chalk, or otherwise affix those numbers to your stones and then use those stones to display your street number. Place them in a flower bed or at the edge of your porch.
9. Beautiful Flower Pots Number Display
Put those flower pots to good use, not only showing off your flowers but displaying your house number as well. You can easily paint your street number on those pots and then just set the up outside within site. This is such an easy and creative way to show off your house number and do it in style. Display your lovely pots at the end of your driveway in their own little flower garden.
10. DIY House Number Flower Hanger
What better way to show off those house numbers than with a beautiful plant? This house number flower hanger is really easy and it looks beautiful on the front porch next to your door. You can hang whatever plant, real or fake, that you want and even change it out with the seasons. I love the vibrant green coloring of this hanger, too, although you can paint it in any color to match your exterior.
