Hey there Bees,
I found these adorable moss-covered animals on Save-on-crafts.com and I want to use them to hold the table numbers for our enchanted forest wedding. I initially thought I would just stick something directly into the heads of the animals, but when the sample I ordered arrived, I found out they are very solid and covered with faux moss. So my question is, how could I attach the table numbers? I want then to be on a stick or wire so that the card with the number is several inches above the top of their heads. I’m hoping you crafty and creative bees can help me out! Thanks!

Could they be drilled? A hole through the top to place the stick into.
Otherwise I was thinking a ribbon around the neck with number card and maybe place the animal on a platform so it is raised on the table.
Cant wait to see what you do with them!

@Mrs2B000: Could you do it so it looked like the bunny was holding it? Either glue the stick between it’s liitle paws or drill a whole like PP said and stick it through. Very cute!

@girlygirl885: I will have to explore drilling a hole. I have no idea what material it’s made of, it feels really solid. I’ll give it a try.
@Lollybags: It sounds cute to have the bunny holding it, but I will also be using moss squirrels and birds, so I wouldn’t be able to do the same with them. Good idea though!

@Mrs2B000: Yup – try a drill with a bit slightly larger than the dowel rod size you would like to use. Then just use glue on the end of the dowel.

@Mrs2B000: i would try drilling a very small hole in the bottom to see how easy/hard it is. if you practice on the bottom, no one will see if you make a boo boo.
how tall are they?

I’m in the drill and glue camp

@mypinkshoes: With the ears, the particular one in the picture is about 6.25 inches tall. There’s a range though, for example, there’s a squirrel on all fours that is much shorter.

You could also get a thin, but sturdy wire and poke it into where the hands are.. then attatch the table number to the wire.. so it looks like the bunny is holding the signs!
If this isn’t possible, then yes I would go with the drill & dowel method.

@Mrs2B000: I would totally drill and glue.
But really I just wanted to say those are so freaking cute!!!
