Wedding DIY Instructions
Make number templates by printing numbers at a suitable size and font using your computer, we recommend a thick blocky font. The number templates can be done freehand also, they don’t need to be perfect. Cut the numbers out using a craft knife or scissors.
Once this is done, attach the prepared templates to the front of your block with masking tape. The block of wood you choose can left natural or alternatively painted or varnished to fit in with your wedding colour scheme.
Pro tip: Choose a font that can be outlined a block style font will do.
Position your pins or tacks around the edge of the cut out number template making sure that every corner has a pin or tack, this will give your number the outline it needs. You can be a bit more free form with the positioning of the rest to create a quirkier look once you start attaching the thread.
Tie your chosen thread onto the first pin and begin winding the thread around and between the pins or tacks and see you number take shape. This project doesn’t need a specific order of winding the thread. Once your number is complete, finish off the way you started by tying the thread to the final pin or tack, this will stop the thread unravelling. Wind the threads around the pins more than once to create a thicker number outline which will stand out more.
For something a bit more challenging try creating wedding signage for the cake table or card table. As budget wedding ideas goes this project is as cheap as chips with just the wood and thread to source!
