DIY Table Numbers Take Two

Last time, we featured an easy way to display table numbers and menus using rustic frames and DIY matting. Today, we have a DIY table number project that takes a bit more effort, but is still super chic and fairly easy to do.

Here’s how to get started…

DIY Table Number Supplies:

  • A garden pot or other small vessel
  • Styrofoam
  • Wooden dowels
  • Ribbon
  • Cardstock to match your theme
  • Faux moss from the craft store
  • Hand-drawn table numbers
  • Tape or glue

Step One: Prep Dowel and Styrofoam

Cut the styrofoam to fit inside your garden pot without showing over the top. Also, wrap the wooden dowels with ribbon in a coordinating texture and color.

Step Two: Attach Table Number and Cardstock to Dowel

First, trim the cardstock to be just a tad bigger than the size of your table number. Lie the cut cardstock down and use your tape or glue to attach the ribbon-wrapped dowel to the top.

Next, tape or glue the table number on top of the cardstock so that the dowel is sandwiched in between.

Step Three: Insert Dowel into Styrofoam

Make sure the dowel reaches down far enough so that it isn’t top-heavy or unstable.

Step Four: Add Moss or Decorative Covering

This allows you to camouflage the styrofoam while also adding a unique touch.

Step Five: Enjoy!

Here are two different looks you can achieve—one with a simple terra cotta pot and another with a more rustic, decorative vase. We’re also featuring our Enchanting Forest place cards below to complete the look!

We want to hear your creative table number ideas, too! Send your photos to blog@weddingpaperdivas.com and we’ll post them for all of our fans and followers.
