Cheap table numbers ideasTable numbers seemed like such an afterthought when I initally began planning my wedding, but Marrisa brought up a great point recently how a lot of brides struggle with keeping the paper goods on the actual table. If you are getting married somehwere where there might be high winds, the project below would be great idea for a bride who is concerned about her table numbers flying away.

1) Clean jars and lids thoroughly and remove all labels.  Soaking them in soapy water will make easy work of this, though occasionally a stubborn label will leave a residue.  Goo Gone will take care of whatever you can’t scrub off
2) Print out numbers and cut down along dotted lines.  Use a piece of double-sided tape to stick number to the inside of glass
3) Trace over number with white paint pen.  Allow to dry a good 5-10 minutes, then go back and paint a second layer until number is opaque
4) Roll a piece of paper into a funnel (or just use a funnel if you have one) and pour sand into jars until almost full.

5) Use lid to trace circle onto fabric with tailors pencil or disappearing ink marker.
6) Mark 1″ around that circle and then cut out with pinking shears
7) Screw jar lid onto jar, and have someone hold fabric over the lid while you tie twine around the top.  If you are doing this solo, put fabric on with a rubber band first and then tie the twine.
8) Voila, table numbers that will hold up to the windiest of days.
