You can find pre-made house blocks at many craft stores. If you don't have some at your local craft store or can't get to a craft store simply cut a 1" x 4" board so that it has a pointed top like a house. My houses are each 5" tall and 4" wide. Paint each house in the color that you prefer. I found these sweet colors at Target, but you can use spray paint or acrylic paint in any of the colors you prefer.

I used a font called Modern No. 20 to cut the numbers and the letters "no." from white vinyl. I used my Silhouette die cut machine and set the numbers to 3" tall. You can see how I laid out my file below.


Once the numbers were cut from vinyl, add them to your house fronts with transfer tape.

Here's a look at house three houses look together. I tend to like projects in threes, but you can make as many as you like. You can see that the sides are also painted. I recommend painting the backs as well. Allow drying time in between each coat.

Take a moment to pin one of the images for inspiration later. Simply hover over the image and a "pin it" button will appear. Then you can pin it to your favorite spring or wooden craft board.
