Leather and Lace Wedding Table Numbers

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on May 18, 2016 4:50:11 PM

Leather and Lace Wedding Table NumbersWedding season is no longer a season anymore. People get married every month of the year. But spring and summer still rule. Because the cost of hosting a wedding keeps going up, brides are always looking for ways to cut expenses and doing it yourself is one way. 

Making table numbers for your reception tables is an easy DIY project that can be done weeks or months ahead of time.

What makes this number unique and different is the small embroidery hoop. I often find them in a variety of sizes at Goodwill. For the bride who is planning a rustic or barn wedding, burlap is the perfect fabric. Pair it with a touch of lace and a bit of leather and you have the perfect casual, country combination. 

Stretch the hoop over a piece of burlap and trim the excess from the back side.

Print your table numbers using a font that coordinates with the rest of your wedding décor. Trace and cut the numbers from faux leather (no raveling). Center and glue to the burlap.

Look for a wide lace ribbon trim that you can glue to the edge and have enough to fold to the front and glue to the front.

In only a few hours, you can whip up dozens of these unique table numbers, save lots of money and impress your guests.
