Bee and Wreath House Number Sign

This cute sign came about because I had a frame I needed to fill.  You just can't have a perfectly good frame just sitting there without anything in it.

There was no inside for this frame so I had to cut a piece of MDF board to fit inside.

I did that by measuring the inside of the frame and then used my circular saw to cut a square to fit inside. 

You could also get this look with no tools involved by repainting a pre-made sign from the Dollar Store.

Take a peek at that brick stenciled floor underneath, you can see what I did by visiting my painted basement story. 

I sanded the edges then gave the board a couple coats of white chalky paint.

When the paint dried I used a small wreath stencil similar to these to make a wreath on my board.

This wreath made the perfect "O" for the sign I made a while back. 

I used the color sage blossom for the wreath. 

Next, I stenciled a bee over the wreath with black craft paint

This is a similar stencil that has both the bee and the wreath

Before I was all finished I stenciled the number 12 at the bottom of the wreath and popped it into the frame.

I used a point driver to attach the MDF board into the frame and if you don't have one of these bad boys you need one! 

This point driver shoots a metal point into the frame and holds the picture into the frame, I use mine ALL THE TIME!

Number 12 is my house number and it was the perfect finishing touch.

Now my naked frame has a beautiful bee and wreath inside and looks great hanging in my home.
