One thing I was surprised to see had such a high price tag were table numbers. These are such simple things, but even ones that were just a number printed on paper were outrageously priced (plus boring). I knew this was a project that could easily be tackled because it doesn't involve much, and you don't have to make hundreds of them.
For my centerpieces, I knew I wanted a small vase with some flowers in them. In order to keep things even and centered (I'm OCD like that), I didn't want the vase and table number competing for the centrally located spot, so I decided to combine the two. I thought, "Wouldn't it be cute if the table number was sticking up in the vase on top of the flowers?!" So I went to work.
All you need for this project is:
- wooden dowels
- wooden numbers
- hot glue
- you can add decorative stuff like glitter, ribbon, lace, etc if you want but I chose not to so as not to distract from my flowers
Glue the numbers on top of the dowels
Determine the height needed for your vase, and cut the dowel appropriately
Paint the table number
Add any decoration
That's it! Easy right?! And it only costs a couple dollars total to make all of them!
