DIY Table numbers

It's a little worrisome that I'm still thinking about craft projects 5 days before my wedding... but some of you feel my pain, I'm sure.  The curse of DIY skills, right?

Over the weekend (which is never long enough!) I finished the table numbers we're going to use.  I dunno where I got this exact idea specifically, although these are inspired by plenty I've seen on DIY wedding blogs, etc.  I used pretty much the same technique as I did for my triangle bunting words tutorial, so check it out if you wanna see how I made them!

One thing that was different... for the letters I printed out, I used Georgia size 500 font.  Maybe italic, I can't remember.
I had the hardest time finding cute scrapbook paper in a soft orange-ey color, so I actually found free printable scrapbook paper online!  Which was way cuter than anything at JoAnn or the paper store, anyway!  I needed something really light and simple.

The frames are from Dollar Tree!  So, for 12 tables, the total cost was barely over $12.  The fabric scraps I already had!

Here they are at the wedding!

(If you did any DIYs for your wedding or the wedding of a friend or loved one, I'd love for you to share them in the Adventures in Dressmaking DIY Weddings Flickr group!!)

  1. I also used frames from the Dollar Tree for my wedding last year! I totally feel you on the last minute crafting. My sister and I were making bouquets and boutonnieres the night before!
