Fancy Chalkboard table numbers are a major trend now in cafés, diners and hip bars. They are the bomb in Instagram posts of every casual dining and themed restaurant in the city, and are beloved by artsy DIY enthusiasts. They give customers something fun and interesting to gaze at while waiting for their orders. The artful design on a chalkboard turns a small table number into an eye-catching piece of art and craft.
The Charm of Chalkboard Table Numbers
Having a chalkboard table number can complete the vintage image you want to create inside your café or diner. It also gives a warm and welcoming feel with its rustic design. And making these playful chalkboard table numbers is easy and light on the budget.
Here are some different designs for chalkboard table numbers that you can create to make your space unique and fun.
Hanging Chalkboard Table Numbers
This one is fun and cute. It looks like a mini blackboard with a number written on it. Hand the numbers over to your customers after they order and let them hang them on the available hook stands on the tables. You can create this lovely craft using a chalkboard vinyl sheet. Simply cut the vinyl sheet into whatever size you prefer for your table numbers, then put a hole near the edge to hang it on the hook. Then start using those colorful liquid chalk markers to write down the numbers. You can add artsy designs on them for an especially fun look.
Rotating Double-Sided Chalkboard Table Numbers
Instead of making a simple square chalkboard for your table numbers, why not make it look more elegant by creating a miniature rotating sign. You can create this effect by covering a small, spinning metal stand with a sheet of chalkboard contact paper. The metal stand already includes a spinning flat square space where you can write. Cover both sides of that vertical piece with your contact paper. Then, write the table number on one side with your liquid chalk markers. On the other side, you can write your specials for the day or any other welcoming messages for your guests.
These are just some of the ideas you can start with when crafting your own distinctive chalkboard table numbers. And there are thousands of other crafts you can create with chalkboards and chalk markers to make each and every corner of your café a unique and stylish space to hang with friends.
