Letterbox Co. + DIY Number Stencils

December 27, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

After I wrote this post on decor8 the other day, a bunch of readers wrote in asking where to find some of the crafty items shown in the photos. I did a little research and found the Letterbox Co. — have you heard of this quaint Australian online shop? It’s a lovely find for you today, the goods are simple and nice… I particularly love the natural paper tape, kraft paper, stenciled numbers adorning tags and clipboards, and other understated beauties.

Letterbox Co. was born out of a love for vintage numbers, stencils, eco-friendly products and brown Kraft papers. When you have a passion for something that doesn’t seem to fade, it is only natural that you’d want to do something with it so this shop is a result of that passion.

I love the paper tape, numbered bottle vase, and the jute laptop case. Fun!


Psst: If you would like to stencil some numbers on things in your home (tablecloths, runners, pillows) simply purchase some stencils and fabric paint (black, gray or white is best if you are going for this vintage industrial look but it also depends on what you will apply them to, white on white doesn’t work for obvious reasons!) and a good stencil brush and try this at home but don’t forget to tape the stencil down or else your numbers may not come out so neat. Here is a free printable stencil template to get you started or you may purchase them here on Amazon for under $5.
