Fun and Easy Projects with Numbers!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fun with NumbersCan you believe it? It’s almost June and summer has unofficially begun! Here…I have numbers on the brain! Maybe it’s an end-of-the-school-year teacher thing surfacing in me! Or maybe it’s the 3 movies in 2 days with my 13 year old grandson plus lunch with the 3 and 4 year old! My summer is already off to a fun start! :-) In any case, I am sharing some of my favorite projects starring numbers…on baskets, table runners, pillows, napkins and more! Enjoy!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Faux Enamel French Number Plaques] I love those vintage French enameled number plaques, but they can be hard to find and expensive…so I made my own! See how I did it here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Numbered Baskets And then, in another little twist to the same idea, I found a super easy and inexpensive way to create those numbered baskets from Pottery Barn! I reveal my little secret here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Farmhouse Numbered NapkinsWhat is it about numbers that gives them that frenchy feel? Here are my French farmhouse numbered napkins…including the free graphic!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Aged Paper Candle Covers And I used the same graphic to create these frenchy numbered candle wraps…including a super easy way to give paper that aged look! You’ll be surprised at the secret ingredient!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Vintage French House Number PillowMy frenchy (Isn’t just about everything I do frenchy?) house number address pillow uses European-style number plaques as the base. I have included a blank so that you can create your own, too!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Country living Inspired Ruler Runner But this one may be my favorite…a Country Living inspired ruler table runner that I created for a friend. You will find the tutorial here.

KittyHmmm…it seems that even Miss Kitty is getting in on the act with numbers! Don't tell her, but I have four #1 kitties!
