Today I have for you a printable with a twist!

It’s a gorgeous floral table number set, with a blank template so you can colour it whichever way suits your theme. I’ve used watercolour pencils as they’re a bit easier to control than regular watercolour, but you can use any medium you feel comfortabe with.

Ready to get a little bit arty?

You’ll need:

  • Akimbo free printable table number template
  • Watercolour pencils
  • Fine paintbrush
  • Ikea Tolsby frame

Before you start:

Download the template and print two copies onto heavy card (either smooth or watercolour paper). Trim to size.

1. Colour in the flowers according to your desired scheme. You don’t have to be too neat, in fact some unevenness in the colour will add to the effect.

2. Dip your brush in water and work your way over the pencil. Don’t worry if you touch the black lines a bit, but don’t use too much water or the black ink will bleed. Allow to dry before inserting a table number on both the front and back of each frame.
