If you want a simple and customizable idea for your table number holders check out A Very Chocolate Life for a simple idea using spiral paper clips, modeling clay, tack glue and glitter.

The best part about this design is the fact that you can mold the clay into any shape you’d like. As Melissa stated, you can roll out the clay and use your favorite cookie cutter to cut out shapes to go with the decor of you big day. You can also paint the holders a certain color if glitter isn’t your thing. Or even get creative with the paper clip and bend a regular paper clip into shapes or use different shaped clips as well.

And how could I do a DIY post without something from the fabulous Martha Stewart? When I saw these wire table number holders I was smitten. Not only can you shape the wire into different figures and designs but it’s simple to! The sturdiness of the wire is also a plus. Not worrying about your table numbers getting knocked over or falling on their own is important.

You simply grab some radio wire (solid, not stranded) and start creating. Martha gives a step by step tutorial to help you out. And if you have a design you love on your invitation, table number or place card you can try and replicate it in wire as well!
