Here is the finished product:
We bought plastic house numbers from Home Depot. For the blacks – we bought black numbers and spray painted them with sparkle (left over from this project) and for the pinks – we bought white numbers and spray painted them with pink paint also left over from the same project.
My Fiancee then cut, sanded and painted the stands and drilled holes in the numbers to attach them to the stands with the screws that came with them.
We then had to come up with a way to cover up the original holes (for screwing them to your house). So I went to the dollar store and picked up a few sheets of “bling stickers”. I cut them up indiviually and stuck them on.

As for how much these cost:
we bought the numbers for $2.19 each (for numbers 1-15 was approx. $50)
the wood for the bases was one long piece at $0.99
the bling stickers were $2 a sheet (I bought 3 sheets, but only used half of one)
and the spray paint we already had from another project, but originally cost about $25.
In total it cost us about $55, which is cheaper than some table number card holders!

You can also make your own paper mache numbers. Free! That is what I am doing and they turned out great!

Thanks!! This makes me feel better about them! I was worried I had made them look “cheap” with the stick on bling
