DIY Rustic Table Numbers designed to style Sara & Anthony’s “Eternity” themed wedding. We decided to make these wooden numbers the focal point of the centerpiece by keeping them simple and classic. The size of these table numbers was essentially the perfect storm; meeting between the taller flower vases and the short candles. We found these wooden numbers in A.C. Moore for a reasonable DIY price. For 15 pieces the total (before tax!) was $19.35. Now for all of you savvy shoppers out there, I also found that if you sign up for their rewards program (they will ask you when you check out), to receive weekly e-coupons, you will also receive 40% off that purchase. Therefore, leaving the store paying a small penny above $12 seemed like a bargain start to me. From there we ventured onto Home Depot where we picked up the Wood Finish in the MinWax brand. The wood finish varies in a number of different stains and the one you pick should relate to your centerpiece's theme; we used a dark auburn brown tint. The process of staining the wood is the messiest in this project (as you can see from the pictures of my hands) but the stain generally comes off after a day or so. All you need for this step is a small cotton rag in which you will dip into the wood finish and lather onto the numbers (along with the direction of wood) until coated. Tip: do not leave any bubbles or marks of discontinuation on the wood because it will dry like so. The wooden numbers may need a few coats of stain but it depends on personal preference of how dark and rich you want them. We used about 5 coats on each (drying 2 minutes in between). For the last step, weather each number in order to match the rustic theme of the event. This step can involve everything from sanding the edges to just hitting certain edges of the wood with a hammer or concrete.
