DIY House Number Plaque with a Wood Slice

We have a family friend who owns a tree cutting business. Last year he asked if I would like some real wood slices for any projects. I said yes, and then headed over to his house before he gave them away!

There are so many things you can do with wood slices, and Amy has several projects. Check out her wood burned plaque, tree branch coasters, and farmhouse Thanksgiving sign.

At my house, these wood slices have been centerpieces, table decor and studio signs. Our condo really needed a house number sign, so guess what came in handy? I’m excited to show you what I did.

Lay out the project and decide where you want the mason jar to be. The lip of the jar needs room, so screw in a small piece of wood into the wood slice.

Tightening a mason jar into a hose clamp

Nail two thin nails into the slots of the hose clamp and into the piece of wood.

Take a hand screwdriver and tighten the clamp around the mason jar until secure.

Picture hook on the back of a wood slice

Add a picture hook to the back of the house number plaque for hanging.

Sanding the front of a wood slice

Take some sandpaper and smooth out where the number will be. We had a package of vinyl letters and numbers from Home Depot.

Adding vinyl numbers to a DIY house plaque

Peel off the numbers needed and stick them on the wood slice in the desired arrangement.

Tip: if you have paint, you can draw some freehand numbers on the plaque with a pencil and then paint them in so you don’t to buy the vinyl letters. We just happened to have them on hand.

Faux flowers wrapped in burlap

To finish, wrap a few artificial or real flowers in burlap and place them into the jar. I had a little burlap bag leftover from a wedding that was perfect.
