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
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 often get requests for creative DIY table number displays, so we’re planning a whole series of them to help you decide which look you like best. We’re starting with a classic—framed table number and menu displays.
The most important supplies for this DIY project are the frames. Scour your local craft stores and art fairs for the perfect look, then pick up two for each table you plan to have. We fell in love with these rustic golden frames, which perfectly matched the menus we had in mind and made it easy to dream up the number decor.
The most important tips we have for this simple step are to make sure to clean the glass inside and out. This will eliminate smudges, specks and other tiny imperfections that will drive you crazy when you look at the finished product. Also, we like to retain the matting that comes with many frames. You can either use it behind the menu to make sure you have a snug fit, or keep it for future craft projects.
Step Two: Prep Your Framed Number
This step isn’t quite as easy, but it’s close! Add double-sided tape to the matting that came inside the frame. Next, stick the matting carefully onto your cardstock or scrapbooking paper. Carefully cut around the edges (including the center!) to make sure the white frame is completely covered with the cardstock color of your choice.
Step Three:Add the Number
Use your double-sided tape again to attach the table number to the frame from the back, (not the front!). This will give a more polished look to the entire project.
Step Four: Place Them Side-by-Side and Enjoy
Isn’t it lovely? And yet so simple!
