Easiest wedding table numbers for a rustic wedding

1. Measure your mini serving boards and decide how big you want your numbers. Signage should be able to be seen from a bit of a distance, so avoid making them too small and consider making sure they have enough color contrast. For our table numbers, the paddle area of our boards is 6.5" tall, so our numbers are sized 3.5" tall.

2. Open Cricut Design Space (or your digital cutting machine software) and start a New Project. (Don't have a machine? You can do this project with some white acrylic paint in your craft stash as well!) If you don't use our Design Space project for this DIY, choose a number font that you like and type out the numbers you'll need for each of your wedding tables. (You can also check out our list for best Cricut wedding fonts for some inspo!)

3. Place the amount of vinyl you need on your cutting mat and let your machine do its magic! Once your numbers are cut, weed out (or remove) the excess vinyl.

4. To help you stick your numbers to your wooden serving boards, use clear transfer tape. Cut the amount you need and place on top of your vinyl number cut-out. Use your scraper tool and push across the transfer tape to give a good connection to the vinyl underneath.

5. Peel your transfer tape off of the vinyl. Your number should now be on the transfer tape and not the glossy carrier paper. Position on your wooden board. When you have it where you want it, use the scraper tool again to stick your number onto the serving board.

6. Setup your table numbers alongside your floral centerpiece for the ultimate rustic elegance! These mini serving boards can also make a great menu sign or cocktail/bar sign. Possibilities are endless!
