D.I.Y. Rustic Table Numbers

What I love about a good DIY project is how they offer budget-conscious brides a cheaper alternative to store-bought items. So today’s project is extra DIY-worthy as it’s both incredibly cheap and unique! Using clay bricks which we got for HK$2.50 each from a local building materials store, we’ve created some pretty cool looking table numbers that would make any centerpiece shine. Let’s get started!

3. Create your own stamp pad by applying some poster paint to piece of felt lined with a plastic sheet.
