I spent a good 2-3 months scouring various thrift stores/garage sales/discount stores looking for vintage frames,etc. I finally accumulated enough to make my table numbers.....
My wonderful FI spray-painting the frames black until his fingers (literally) went numb!
Used a backing of black cardstock with silver vellum over it, then applied my numbers that I crafted from my Cricut (used the Sophisticated cartridge) and them embellished with a few rhinestones. I'm so proud of these! I just hope the cavones in my family don't try to steal them from the tables :oP
I like it! The vintage frames are beautiful! Must have taken you some time to go hunt for all of these. I love that they are all black frames. How wonderful that your fiance helped you out! I also love your table numbers style on the white paper done via your cricut.
LOVE the frames. They look exactly like the ones at hobby lobby they are charging $10-$20 for! I will definatly have to start looking at the discount stores here in town! Great job!
Those came out great! I am going to have to try this!
Thanks! Most of the frmes were around $1-3, but some of the more ornate ones were on clearance for $4-6 at TJ Maxx and Ross
BEAUTIFUL!!! I laughed so hard when you mentioned you hope your family members don't steal them, lol....I was thinking the same about my fam & the centerpieces!!
@zarriah Lol! I couldn't stop thinking about it after I read that thread about people stealing centerpieces! Thanks!
OMG! I am doing the exact same thing!!! I'm having a hard time finding frames though.:-( I have only found 7 so far and I need a total of 32. We're using our engagement pictures with numbers to go in the frame. I LOVE your design with the numbers! What kind of paint did you use? I found some red, pink, and purple frames that I need to spray black. Thanks for posting!!
@KayElleTee I used regular black spray paint, any brand will do. I used a metallic shimmer black. Check Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshall's, but also check out local thrift stores, you'd be surprised what you can find!
