DIY House Number Idea

2 Materials
10 Minutes

We were the only house on our row without a house number. I fancied something a bit different. Something in keeping with my usual "style". I found these numbers on Ebay. They are originally meant for fish tanks, so I'm guessing they should be Welsh rain proof!
Fish tank letters and numbers. You could spell out any house name.
...So I ordered two of these from Ebay and waited 2 weeks (as they come from the East).
Dug around in my tool cupboard to retrieve my trusty gun and glue. This glue is amazing - you can even use it outdoors in the rain!
Several squirts later the numbers were up!
I originally put masking tape over them for 24 hours to keep them in place. Forgot to take a pic of that.
It's dried on rock solid.
Yay, Just how I hoped it would look. The postman says he likes it too!
