simple table number DIY

I constantly collect supplies and craft-type objects, because in my head, I have tons of projects. I'd love to paint, glue, build, refurbish, assemble - but the sad truth is that I just have a ton of random supplies. I hoard jars and stickers, keep broken items that should be tossed. I can't help it, I'm a crafter at heart, even though most of my ideas never make it out of my head.
I do however, have a really simple project - that I did to make table numbers. 

All you need is some mason jars (I got mine at Christmas Tree Shop), some foam numbers (Oriental Trading), and gold spray paint! 
I sprayed the rim of the jar for an extra pop of color. 
If you have more than 10 tables, you'll need a ton of the number 1, for more than 20, extra 2s as well, etc. Take a tally of how many of each number you will need before you get started. 

After spraying the foam numbers and allowing to dry, just place the numbers on the jars at the same height on each. 
I put a candle inside my jars, but flowers or colored candy would look cute for a small party! 

By keeping the numbers on the sticker sheet when you paint, the edges of the numbers will not be painted. This didn't bother me, but if you want a super clean look, you can carefully peel the background away from the numbers before painting.
