Not every home has the perfect, easy-to-see spot to display a house number. But even if you do, this DIY’s unique take house numbers will have you second guessing a traditional display.
- large terra-cotta pot + saucer
- (2) medium terra-cotta pots
- (2) small terra-cotta pots
- spray paint
- numerical stickers
- potting soil
- various plants
Prepare Base Pot
Cover the largest terra-cotta pot in a layer of white spray paint. Let dry completely.
Add House Numbers
Once the base coat is dry, place the numerical stickers onto the front of the pot. Be certain to press down all edges of the stickers so no paint can seep under the sides. Next, cover the pot in the color of your choice. Let the paint dry. Once the pot is dry, slowly peel the stickers off to reveal the stenciled house numbers. Paint the other two pots in coordinating colors.

Another cool plant-based house number idea is to create planter boxes for succulents. Here's how!
Set a medium-sized terra-cotta pot upside down in the large pot. Place potting soil around the inserted pot, leaving the top uncovered. Plant with a vine or other trailing plant. Set the medium-sized painted pot on top of the inserted pot, and place a small pot upside down within the medium pot. Add soil, and plant around the small pot. Finally, set the smallest painted pot on the inserted pot. Fill with soil, and add some show-stopping flowers to showcase your new terra-cotta pot tower. Place by your front door for a statement piece that looks beautiful and works hard.
