All our vendors were booked by mid May.
You would think that meant I could just sit back and relax for the next 106 days.
With less than four months to go, I had to really get cracking on my DIY list, which had remained untouched since the yarn balls. Next victim? Table numbers.
After stalking other wedding blogs and Pinterest, I decided I would copy the framed table-number idea. My plan would have worked flawlessly had Michaels not discontinued their line of wooden numbers. I checked Hobby Lobby, but wouldn’t you know it? They didn’t carry the darn numbers either.
A lesser bride might have panicked, but not a Unicorn bride.
I found these at Michaels. They’re the right size for this project, and if anybody has a problem with the fact that I used letters instead of numbers, well, they can just take a long walk off a short pier.
First, I painted all the letters white. Then I purchased some frames and painted them to match.
I bought pretty fabric to mount the numbers on.
And voila! The finished product:
Did you run into any problems that threatened to derail your DIY projects? How did you handle them? Do you think anyone will care that I used letters instead of numbers?
