Project

Table Numbers Around Town

Introduction

Searching for the perfect table numbers? Look no further than your front door -- and those of your neighbors.

Materials

  • Digital camera
  • Photo paper
  • Mat board
  • Double-sided tape
  • Clear tape
  • Craft knife or scissors

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Snap digital photos of house numbers, as well as those on awnings and signs. Upload photos to a computer; crop so number fills the frame. For double-sided displays, print two of each digit onto photo paper.

  2. Step 2

    To make tented stand, cut two pieces of mat board (ours are 5 3/4 by 3 1/4 inches). Trim photos to be slightly smaller than the boards; center and affix with double-sided tape.

  3. Step 3

    Lay facedown with tops of numbers touching; place clear tape along edge where they meet. Fold so numbers face out.

    I searched the internet for pictures of house numbers. I downloaded the 2 different pictures per table. Then cropped them and printed them on 4 x 6 photo paper. Then I purchased generic table numbers tents at the local craft store. I took card stock of the bride's colors and cut them to 5 x 7. I secured the photo to card stock and then the card stock to the table number tent. Each # tent has 2 different pics on it. Very cool and should give the wedding a ecclectic feel.

    I think it would also be cute to use fun photos of the couple holding a poster that says, for example, "Table Two". You could even do this in different scenic or important places. In front of the place where the couple met, for example, with the story on the back of the table number. And the place where they had their first date. Mom's house. Where they got engaged. Favorite restaurant. Childhood homes. College. High school. Cool hangouts around town.

    There is a project that I did in Typography class called found numbers, where I went around and found and photographed objects in the shape of different numbers, that would be a neat alternative to house numbers.
