DIY Textured Copper Table Number Vases with Martha Stewart + Cricut

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Williamsburg, Virginia

Multi-purpose details on a wedding day are 100% our jam. So when we were dreaming up our next reception-inspired DIY tutorial for our friends at Cricut and Martha Stewart, we knew it had to be something practical and pretty. Therefore here enters a chic boho-inspired table number that also serves as centerpiece decor! (And if you remember from last month, it complements perfectly with our copper-wrapped selenite crystal place card DIY tutorial.)

Using our Cricut Explore Air 2 Martha Stewart Edition, textured copper vinyl (which is our new favorite vinyl from Cricut!), white vinyl, and a glass cylinder floral vase, you can make the easiest, most gorgeous table numbers for your wedding reception. Afterwards, drop off your table number vases to your professional florist before the big day so they can effortlessly weave your handmade touch into your final tablescapes (just like what vendor fam Palette of Petals did for us which was beautifully captured by Dani White Photography). Now let's get to crafting!

Materials for making chic wedding table number vase centerpieces for your wedding day

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Set out all of your materials and prep your computer, laptop, or mobile phone to connect with your Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.

2. Measure how tall your glass vase is so you know the size of your table number details. Determine how thick you want your copper stripe and how big you want your table number words to be. (Because our vase is 7" tall, our copper stripe is 2.6" wide and our "Table #" phrase is 2.5" wide and 1.6" tall.)

3. Go to Cricut Design Space and open a New Project. Create your text/table number wordage. We recommend choosing two different complementary fonts like a cursive/script font and a print/sans serif font.

4. To create the copper stripe shape in Design Space, add a vertical rectangle shape and add a triangle shape to your canvas. Place the triangle on the end of the rectangle and then size accordingly so it matches up together. Once aligned, click both shapes so they are "highlighted" together. Select Weld so it becomes one shape.

HELPFUL TIP: Once you have this shape created, all you have to do is Duplicate it for all of your other table numbers! Work smarter, not harder is our motto!

5. Load your textured copper vinyl on your cutting mat and ensure your material dial on your Cricut machine is set on "Vinyl." To make sure you are only cutting your copper stripe for this step, click on the eyeball icon next to your "Table #" layer to make it invisible. When ready, click the green "Make It" button and watch your cut come to life!

6. Peel your copper stripe off of its backing and then carefully place your copper stripe on your glass vase. We recommend aligning it to the top of the vase and then smoothing downwards. This vinyl has a strong adhesive so place slowly on the vase!

8. Weed or take away the excess vinyl leaving only your table number words. Using some transfer tape from your bundle, burnish the transfer tape over your weeded table number words and then peel off so that your words are on your clear transfer tape.
