House Numbers

Well, hello!  It seems like forever since I've posted!  I'd like to say that I've been doing all sorts of wonderful, exciting things, but the truth is, everyday life at Love and Life at Leadora just got in the way!  Anyway, I did manage to come up with a new way to display our house numbers. 

This was a super easy project which only required a trip to the BadWon't (aka GoodWill) and a visit to the blog, Jones Design Company.   First, I found the frame for $3.99 at the BadWon't.   After  popping out the glass, I glued black cardstock on the cardboard backing that came with the 8x 10 frame.  Next, I  transferred the numbers from Jones Design Company onto the black cardstock and then colored them in with my chalkboard paint pen.  Finally, I hung the frame with wide white ribbon purchased at Joann's with a 40% off coupon.    In the end, my house numbers cost less than $10.  This is my kind of and cheap!
