House + Hone DIY Custom House Numbers

Hey y'all I have been working on our entry and wanted to do something custom for our first house.  So why not water color house numbers. 

First things first, find a font you like! I liked the numbers from the Elephant font
 and just in case you were wondering....

I free handed my numbers but you can totally trace them if you wanted perfect numbers.

the great thing about watercolor pencils is you can just add water with a paint brush! I find this soooo much more easier than using regular watercolor. 

Finish out with outlining with a permanent marker for a more defined edge.

Place in frames. I painted some wooden 4x6 frames I found in a box and presto! I have Custom House Numbers!
