As many of you already know, John and I moved into our first home at the beginning of last month, and we have been working hard to spruce the place up.  We have done a lot of work on the outside of the house, by planting flowers, cutting back overgrown trees, and decorating a bit. 

One thing that was really missing from our house was a nice looking house number.  There were numbers on the front of our house when we moved in, but they were really old and worn looking, and begging for an update.

I really wanted to make a cute house number sign for our front door.  I’m not really much of a crafty person, and need all of the help I can get in that department.  I turned to FrogTape’s Shape Tape to help me paint a house number sign, and I think it came out adorable!

FrogTape® Shape Tape™ comes in three different patterns: Chevron, Wave and Scallop.  For this project, I chose to use the Chevron pattern.  In addition to the FrogTape® Shape Tape™, I purchased 4 acrylic paint colors, foam paint brushes, a wired ribbon, a wooden board and wooden numbers.

I started my project by painting my wooden board with the lightest colored paint.

Then, I painted my wooden numbers in black.

Next, I cut and applied my FrogTape® Shape Tape™ to the wooden board.  I wanted to have a larger chevron pattern on the outside edges, and a smaller chevron pattern in the middle.  The tape was very easy to apply.

Next, I painted over the FrogTape® Shape Tape™ with the two green colors.

I let the paint dry for a couple of days, and then carefully pulled it off to reveal my beautiful chevron pattern.  The FrogTape® Shape Tape™ did a really great job at creating a perfectly straight edge.  That’s because FrogTape® Shape Tape™ is treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed.

This is what it looked like after I pulled all the tape off.

Next, I glued on the wooden numbers that I had painted black, and added a bow I made with wire ribbon.  Here’s the finished project!
