Rustic Weddings and DIY go hand in hand and we have stacks of DIY wedding projects to have a go at in our DIY section here.
Taken from Issue 5 of Kiss The Bride Magazine and created by Jane Day, stylist and blogger of Tea With Ruby, style up your table numbers with a block of wood and colourful cotton!
You will need …
- Wooden Blocks
- Number Templates
- Panel Pins or Carpet Tacks
- Embroidery Thread or Coloured Cotton
- Craft Knife or Scissors
- Masking Tape
Follow this …
Make number templates by printing numbers at a suitable size and font using your computer. 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.
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. 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. Be guided by what looks good to you rather than following a specific order. Once your number is complete, finish off the way you started by tying the thread to the final pin or tack.
For something a bit more challenging try creating a plaque for the cake table or card table perhaps these would make great wedding signage and with just the wood and thread to source this project is cheap as chips.
