Easy Holiday Party DIY: Glitter and Beads Table Number and Centerpiece

Combining elements to serve double duty on your party tables is a great decorator’s trick. Like this quick and easy holiday table number and centerpiece in one! All the materials are inexpensive, easy to find, and a breeze to assemble. Plus you get to save on flowers because each bead-covered number serves as a bloom itself! Curious? Here’s how it works.

Holiday Party DIY for Making Glitter Table Number Holders

Materials you will need:

– numbers cut out of heavy cardboard or chipboard
– glass beads or sequins in 2 or 3 shades of red
– crafting glue
– faux rose stalks with the roses removed (don’t worry, you can put them back on later for future party needs!)
– small vases or pots
– stuffing material (tissue paper) and florist’s moss

Crafting the ‘blooming’ table numbers:

  1. Brush each cardboard number with crafting glue. Then cover it entirely in beads or sequins, shaking off any excess.
  2. Repeat the process with the remaining numbers. Let them dry thoroughly.
  3. Stand a rose stalk in each vase or pot, using the tissue paper stuffing to hold it upright. Cover the stuffing with a layer of moss.
  4. Position a pot on each party table, and perch a beaded table number at the top of each stalk. If some numbers threaten to fall off, add a dab of glue to the surrounding leaves and stems to keep them in place.

Ta da! Your combined table numbers and centerpieces! Now, how easy is that?
