Thanksgiving DIY: Rustic-style Seed Table Numbers

Planning a major family reunion at Thanksgiving with a large guest list? Then table numbers would be a practical decor element that could be craftily decorated, too! We suggest a rustic/organic look in keeping with the autumn season. Plus one that’s surprisingly simple to make. Our title does mention seeds, right? So come and see how we used those in this table number DIY!

Materials you will need:

– recycled carton box or corrugated board
– pencil
– glue
– crafting cutter or X-Acto knife
– assorted seeds and beans (birdseed, rice, mung beans, white beans, red beans, corn kernels, etc.)

3 easy steps:

  1. Pencil in the numerals for the table numbers on the box or corrugated board. Then cut them out with the cutter or knife.
  2. Apply a layer of glue onto the front side of each number, and quickly apply the seeds, beans, and similar items in a random manner. Do the same on the reverse of each number.
  3. Display the decorated numbers by tucking them into lovely foliage centerpieces (as shown), propping each one against a lantern, or mounting them on wooden dowels or tree twigs placed in vases.

A pretty and practical accent for your party tables. And so in keeping with the fall season and the Thanksgiving holiday!
