Rustic-Chic Table Numbers

via Blog by Wednesday Custom Design on 1/6/12

This one is for all you planning a pretty rustic wedding. These cute vintage wood table numbers are super easy to make and add the perfect bit of chic rustic-ness to your tables. You could even use this idea for other design elements for your wedding too – endless possibilities! 

You will need:
• Pieces of wood
• Cardstock paper
• Inkjet printer
• Scissors
• Elmer's glue
• Modge Podge
• Foam brush

How to create the table numbers:

1. First you will need to determine the design you want to transfer on the wood. We created a 2 with a garland wrapped around, but you can do whatever you'd like!

2. With your foam brush paint a smooth layer of Elmer's glue on a piece of card stock. Be sure to fully cover the area where your design will be. Let the glue has completely dried.

3. Print a reversed inkjet image on the glue side of the cardstock. Once you have that paint a thin, smooth layer of Modge Podge on the wood and stick the inkjet image face down on the wet Modge Podge. Make sure to press down hard and smooth over. Let the glue dry for 8 hours.

4. After the transfer has dried for 8 hours let it run under warm water from the faucet until the cardstock is completely saturated and peels off from the wood on its on its own.

Once it is off, it should reveal your rustic design on the wood!Designed by Wednesday for Green Wedding Shoes
