Table numbers help your guests find their seat. They are a small, yet important detail that can be used to incorporate your wedding’s theme.
I created my woodland lantern centerpieces before I made my table numbers. I knew the centerpieces would be the feature of the table, and that the table numbers would need to complement the centerpiece, not detract from it.
My wedding theme was elegant woodland fairy garden, and I used natural greens, blues, and rose gold for my color palette. Since my doilies were rose gold, I decided the table numbers would be blue.

What You Will Need
- Chip board numbers ($.99 each usually, but they go on sale often so you can get them for $.49 each sometimes!)
- Flat, balanced wood pieces (A bag of oval slices available at Hobby Lobby for $2.99; These are not the ones pictured in my photos, but I used these for another craft so I think they could work. The wood pieces I used are also available at Hobby Lobby.)
- Paint (I used Folk Art Metallic Ice Blue for $1.99.)
- Glue (I used a hot glue gun.)
- Optional: Adornments (I used dried flowers from DriedDecor.com leftover from my other crafts.)
How to Make Your Table Numbers
- Paint your chip board table numbers. You may need more than one coat to achieve desired color.
- Let dry.
- Once the paint is dry, glue the numbers onto the wood pieces. Hold until dry.
- Once the table numbers are securely fastened to the wood, add adornments.
Yes, That Easy
