Chalkboard table numbers

Table numbers are an often overlooked detail of your reception decor. But by the time your thoughts turn to those finishing touches you might have run out of time (or steam!) to do anything overly complicated.

Here is a ridiculously simple but cute way to jazz up store-bought mini chalkboards.

Chalkboard table numbers

1. Simply apply fabric tape to the chalkboard frame and trim to size.

2. Using a liquid chalk pen, draw a loopy number, then fill out the vertical strokes and add circles on the ends for a whimsical faux calligraphy. Set aside to allow the chalk to dry before turning over and repeating on the other side.

That’s it! You can substitute washi tape for the fabric tape and use any colours and patterns to suit your wedding style. Use the other side either to repeat the table number or include the menu or a special welcome message to your guests.
