I came across this project and thought it would be cute for any front porch or back lawn area. It's by Positively Splendid blog. You certainly don't have to use polka dots. This project is also great for adding your home number for an easy visual marker. As you can see from the picture, you can do a mini 2 tier version.
The Positively Splendid blog has all kinds of goodies like sewing projects, DIY, home decor, kid friendly projects, general crafts, projects for holidays & seasons, etc.
