How to Make Faux Leather Wedding Table Numbers
Difficulty Level: Easy
Color Inspiration: Neutrals, green, and brown
• Double-Sided Tape
• Hot Glue Gun
• Leather Hole Punch
• Jewelry Pliers
• Glass Bottles
• Jump Rings (Antiqued Brass)
• Cotton Baking Twine
• 1 - roll of Cricut Faux Pebbled Leather (Champagne)
• 1 - roll of Cricut Faux Pebbled Leather (Beige)
• Personal electronic cutting machine (e.g., Cricut)
• Standard Grip Adhesive Cutting Mat
1. We'll first start with figuring out the length you want for your table numbers. Using the ruler and your glass bottles, determine how much space on the glass bottle you want to take up with your table number. In this tutorial pictures, our table numbers are 4" long. The length is the most important versus the width! If you have drastically different sized bottles, you may have to adjust the length accordingly.
2. Go to Cricut Design Space, open a New Project, and start playing with the fonts you'd wish to use for your numbers. (I used a system font, Mix Redux from Creative Market.) It's highly recommended to use a thick font that makes for a "meaty number" as your numbers will have enough material to be punched and will make a visual statement on your wedding tables.
3. Once you decide on your font, you will make two numbers on the same Design Space project: one for the bottom layer and one for the top layer. Resize the top layer to be smaller than your bottom layer so you get that fun layered look!
4. Place one of the faux pebbled leathers on your standard grip adhesive cutting mat for cutting. Be sure to change the dial to "Custom" and select "Leather, Faux" in the drop-down menu in Design Space. Cut and then repeat with your second leather color.
5. With the double-sided tape, adhere the two layers together being careful to not show the tape on the edges. If you prefer a more loose look, then skip this step.
6. Using the leather hole punch, select your "hole" size and punch somewhat close to the top edge of your number. For our Number 5, I placed the hole at the "center of gravity" for the 5 so it would fall nicely on the glass bottle.
7. With one of the jump rings, open the ring with the jewelry pliers, loop in the punched hole, then close. Repeat and link a second jump ring onto the one attached to the faux leather number.
8. Tightly wrap the baking twine around the neck of your glass bottle to your liking and use some double-sided tape to temporarily fasten. Be sure to have enough strands at the bottom of where you will hook your table number onto the twine. Once hooked onto the twine, unfasten the twine end from the temporary double-sided tape, tighten, and then place a small dot of hot glue to secure the twine permanently on the glass bottle. (Be aware that on a wedding table, a centerpiece is a 360 view, so the back of your glass bottle will be seen!)
9. Step back, place some blooms inside the bottle, and voilà! You've got a fabulous table number centerpiece for your wedding table!
