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
- Wooden dowels
- 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!
