For my “After the Wedding” reception this fall, I’ve been leaning towards a rustic, industrial theme. I had ideas in my head but hadn’t purchased anything until I went shopping with my mom. We stopped at HomeGoods to waste some time and I ended up finding these gorgeous wood and metal three-tiered cake stands. Then I found a mixed wood and marble cake pedestal. It was love.

Then everything else started piecing together. I knew what I wanted to do for a guestbook, name cards and finally these table numbers. The metals in this DIY are different than the metal on the cake stand, but they will be in different areas of the venue.

Instructions:

  1. Saw the 8ft. wood board into 6 inch increments. This will give you 16 blocks. Adjust from there if you need more table numbers. My husband used a hand-saw, but this will go by much faster if you have a circular saw.
  2. Arrange your staining space with a tarp to keep the floor clean. Wear the gloves while you are staining to keep your skin from getting full of stain. Dip the cloth into the well-mixed stain, then coat the wood. I only did one layer of stain on these blocks and the color turned out great. I let mine dry overnight.
  3. Pick out where the numbers look best. Use the power drill to attached the numbers to the wood block. Easy. Peasy.

    Wonderful idea. Easy enough to make and big so you can actually find your table. How do you keep them from falling over? We might paint instead of stain to go with the brides colors.

      They are one-inch thick and stand very well on their own.

    Oh my goodness, those are really cute. I’m not getting married but I’d love to make these with my house number on them to display on my front porch. I think it would look so cute. They look fun and easy to make.

    A great and creative idea. I love it. I like when weddings do not always follow the traditional look and style. You did a great job.

    Oh my gosh that is adorable! I would’ve never thought about doing something like that but it is so cute. I will definitely be telling my friend about this who’s getting married in October.

      I don’t even remember where I found the inspiration! Somewhere on pinterest, most likely, lol.

    Oh how amazing do they look, what a fantastic idea for making your own table numbers.

  7. July 3, 2017 / 7:55 pm

    This is such a cute idea! I love that it is so inexpensive to make these too. Thanks for the directions!

    These are the perfect table markers. They’re easy to read but don’t sacrifice form for function, either.

  9. July 3, 2017 / 10:27 pm

    This looks like an easy DIY project! My friend is engaged and I’m going to suggest this to her.

    What a cute and original idea! I also love the fact that it is extremely cost effective while still adding a necessary touch to the wedding.

    These turned out beautifully. I love and respect a good DIY. The brushed finish on the numbers is the perfect finish.

    This is a really a creative idea apart from the ongoing traditional wedding ideas. Must say that this looks cool and is not expensive. I would love to follow this in my wedding.

    These are unique pieces to accentuate the theme of the wedding. We only had regular pieces of paper in our wedding reception.

    WOW, this is such a great idea. My daughter is getting married next summer and I am going to make these for her tables. She is having a backyard party so these will fit perfect! Thanks…love your photos!

    Such a nice idea. I think I can have this design for my side table. Maybe using my favorite number and get a little artsy. Thanks for giving out this suggestion.

    What a great diy for a wedding. I love how rustic they came out. I wonder if I could use this idea for something around the house.

  19. July 5, 2017 / 6:04 am

    You are so creative with these wood and I love the dark stain you used in it. The numbers popped against the dark wood!

  20. July 5, 2017 / 7:40 am

    Rustic and simple, I love the clean look! The dark stain is great too, excellent choice.

  21. July 5, 2017 / 8:31 am

    Wow! You are so talented! I don’t know anyone getting married, but I love this idea! My nephew recently got married and they made a lof of the decorations as well. Love this idea!

    I’m getting married next year and I’m obsessed with DIY bits! I love these table numbers

  24. July 7, 2017 / 8:06 am

    I love the rustic theme to these table toppers, what an awesome DIY. I never had a reception for my first wedding 10 years ago, but we were trying to save as much money as possible, so we just didn’t. I regret it at the same time, I’m divorce now, so my next wedding if I get married, I’m have Pinterest to go by, I have so many DIY projects saved for it. haha. I think the more DIY you can do for your wedding, the more special it will be. Congrats!

  25. July 7, 2017 / 5:05 pm

    Wow this is pretty creative and easy. Having DIY items is great for saving money for a wedding so this is nice for people possibly having a little rustic themed wedding!
