Note the plural here… not table numbers made out of cork, the material, but made out of LOTS of corks!

I love many things about these DIY table numbers that Lisa made. I asked her why she decided to make her own table numbers. Her response? She said:

“I was really trying to not spend a ton of money on things for the wedding that were going to end up in the trash immediately after the wedding was over, so getting table numbers printed or paying for someone to make them just wasn’t going to work for me.”

Lisa’s mom collects corks, and many in her family are wine drinkers, so Lisa knew she wouldn’t have any trouble acquiring a whole lot of them.

I love the accents of burgundy from the corks stained by red wine. And don’t they look so pretty next to the low floral centerpieces by Fox Petal Floral?

So, how did she do it? Lisa’s explanation is simple… super glue, and trial and error. That was it! I’m extremely impressed, because I know if I tried this, I would have corks permanently glued to my arm, and table numbers that would topple over. Great job, Lisa!
