DIY: Button + Fabric Table Numbers

Mary Veterano Photography

Here's a very simple, fun project for table numbers for a party. If you're going for something kitschy or vintage these are great because you can use buttons, brooches, and pendants from antique stores and flea markets.

  • Scrap Fabric, large enough to fit into a picture frame
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • Buttons, Brooches, Pendants
  • Picture frame

    Step 1: Trace your number onto your fabric with sewing chalk or a pencil.

    Step 2: Lay out your buttons, brooches, findings, and pendants on your number. Take a picture of your finished layout for reference.

    Step 3: Sew your pieces to the fabric in the pattern that you laid out. I used an embroidery hoop to help me.

    Step 4: Cut your fabric to fit your picture frame (if necessary) and place it in the picture frame. Trim any overhang after putting the backing on the frame. Voila!
