Some homes can be fairly nondescript, so clear house numbers are essential. This DIY idea ticks three boxes: it's cheap, quick and reusable. If you're looking for an easy project to decorate your fence or porch this might be fun to try. House numbers made from nails! You can buy black nails but if you've got time you could paint old nails any colour you like. Start with a stencil, some nails, a hammer and see where you end up.
