Fabric Table Numbers

Add a custom handmade element to your wedding by creating these fabric table numbers from Once Wed. With common earthy elements and some stitching, including them in a table centerpiece can introduce a little personality and fun to any party. Customise the pots by painting them to co-ordinate with your own wedding colour.

Sticks, moss, hot glue gun, fabric, pots, paint, sewing machine (if you have one), needle & thread, paintbrush, kraft paper and stuffing.

1. Start by printing out the template (found on Once Wed website) on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, which contains patterns for the circle and numbers.

2. Cut out the circle and number you wish to make from the printed sheet of paper.

3. Cut two separate circles out of fabric. Then, cut a number out of the fabric.

4. Next, take the number and hand-stitch it onto the centre of one of the fabric circles.

5. Once that is finished, take both of the circles (with the number facing inward) and sewn them together near the edge leaving an inch open at the bottom.

6. Turn the circle inside out and fill with stuffing.

7. Put the stick in the center of your painted pot, then pack kraft paper around the stick to keep it firmly in position.

8. With a hot glue gun, attach moss to cover the kraft paper. You can also leave the craft paper exposed for a different look.

9. Finally, insert the stuffed fabric circle onto the stick.
