I would really like to have wooden letters than stand upright on the tables like the wooden number in the picture below from oncewed. Any ideas on how to get the wooden letter to stay upright if it isnt propped up against something?

I’m not positive, but that number looks like it may be cardboard. If that’s the case, I believe they sell the numbers at Paper-Source. They have flat bottoms, so it should be fine standing on it’s own.
If you truly want wood though, I would check out Etsy for that. Best of luck!

You could make a mini “prop”. For example, buy those large tongue depressor things you see at the doctor (craft stores!) & cut them into 1-2″ lengths, and glue them to the bottom of your number perpendicularly. Paint them the same color as your number.
Just an idea.

@vaness13181: I just checked paper source and I think you may be right!
@Mrs Franks: What a great idea!! thanks

It does look like the cardboard/paper mache style numbers. Hobby Lobby sells them as well if you have one in your area.

Hmm…I sort of forgot about the numbers that are NOT flat on bottom! In that case, I think what Mrs Franks said sounds like a good idea. I’ve also seen those (gosh this is going to be hard to explain) little sticky rubber clear things people use on the inside of kitchen drawers and cabinet doors to prevent slamming used to keep things upright too. Just a thought.

You’d have to use two of those rubber things on the bottom of the rounded number part…one on each side to hold it upright. But if someone even slightly bumps the table I think it could fall over. Popsicle sticks might work better, or a combo of both 🙂

I’m not sure where you can buy it (but I know you can), but consider using that gummy/sticky material that you find attached to credit cards when they come in the mail. It’s sticky, but you can peel it off too.
My friend used this stuff for her wedding to attach heavy cardstock photoframes to a canvas wall backdrop. And after the wedding, she could just peel/rub off the sticky stuff and keep the photoframes.
I guess it’s sort of like this stuff: http://www.vat19.com/dvds/joes-sticky-stuff-pressure-sensitive-tape.cfm

The letters we used for our monogram at our wedding were cardboard that I spray painted gold and brown (our wedding colors). Those should be able to stand up by themselves. You can buy them at Michael or Joann Fabrics.

I ordered metal table numbers from him which were great after I spray painted them. I’m sure the wooden numbers he has are great too. They are designed to stand on their own.

I first saw numbers like these thanks to Jackie-o and ever since, they’ve been in my mind as a nice thing to have on the tables. I didn’t know cardboard ones existed, will have to investigate

You can get those numbers online at the store below. They also have numbers that have flatter bases so they’ll be easier to stand.
