DIY Affordable Boulder Address Plaque for Outside
We received a free real boulder and we decided to do something with it to enhance our home's front. Follow along and see how I made our DIY rock address plaque after giving us one of the unique boulders on his property.
BEFORE IMAGE: We found a place to put it. Position the boulder the flat surface is facing forward so people can see it from the street. Since it was near a lamppost, I did not need to have a light shine on it. But, if you want it, you can add a spotlight solar-powered light in front of it.
The screws and anchors came with these numbers but it was needed.
We used SteelStik Steel Reinforced Epoxy Putty Stick to help adhere the numbers to the boulder.
Center the middle number, so you have room on either side for the rest of the numbers. The adhesive is a putty consistency, so you will need to roll it around to adhere to the metal number. Try not to add too much, or it will be noticeable on either side of the metal number. Follow the instructions on the container. Hold it in place for a few minutes. We did not need to tape it in place. It adhered fairly quickly.
Here's the finished boulder address plaque. We continued adding the numbers with the adhesive. Be sure to line up the top and bottom of the numbers to make sure from a distance; it looks straight. If your stone is taller, you can angle the numbers or place them vertically.
