DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

As part of my recent wedding story for HGTV , I got to play with spray paint and create my very own mini pedestal stands. I had found some vintage pink saucers in a flea marked, and all I needed was to spray paint some ceramic candlesticks to match.  I have to say I was hooked - Not only was it easy to make, so pretty, but also way more inexpensive than buying individual stands.

But for this handmade party I styled  for HGTV , I forgot to order in advance and had to make my own... Mine are nooooo way near as fabulous as the ones from the vendors above, but they tasted pretty yummy, and very handy when you're in a pinch! ;)
