Table Numbers - An Easy DIY Project

Can't decide on what to use for table numbers but really don't want those ho-hum framed numbers? Why not make these DIY table numbers. They give your wedding a modern look and are easy to transport to your wedding (no worry about broken glass!)

How to make them?

OK, I'm sure you can figure it out for yourself but here goes:

Squares of wood
Black paint
sand paper
House numbers (to match the table numbers)

Just cut out the wooden squares (your hardware store may be willing to cut yours for you, my Home Depot did, but no guarantees). Sand the edges with sandpaper till smooth.Sand the flat areas as well. Paint (use whatever color you like, we used black, but there's no reason you can't use neon or pastels). Then screw or tack on the table numbers. (Depending on the brand they'll come with screws or little tacks.)

Be sure your wood is thick enough to hold the tacks without going through the opposite side.  Fine sanding will make this project look upscale, so take your time and do it right!

This is an EEEBCDI (Easy Enough Even Bill Can Do It) project. (for those of you who read my blog you know I test projects for easiness by having my husband, Bill try them out!) He said he could have cut the squares himself (and your groom may be able to as well, or you could), but we wanted to make it as easy as possible for you. So for the bride looking for an easy DIY project that her significant other can take on, this can make him feel like he's part of the wedding without having to handle girly stuff like tulle!

Have fun! You have to admit they really look great!
