Now, I’m not a fur momma so I’m not used to little pieces of fur floating through the air while crafting but today’s tutorial of our cute DIY Fur Numbers are totally worth the mess because they are the perfect touch to my New Years Eve display!
To make these posh numerals, you’ll need a quick trip to JOANN to snag a few craft items:
- Darice 12” Paper Mâche Numbers (2, 0, 1, 8)
- Fab Lab Craft Fur, 9″x12″ (in store)
- Fabric scissors, we are partial to Fiskars
- Scotch Super 77 Multipurpose Spray Adhesive
This is seriously easy. Trace, cut, and glue. Bam. To be more specific, though…
- Flip number opposite the fur so when you trace it, it is in reverse. (If you trace your numeral as-is, the fur will fit the backside. (See pics.)
- While cutting, try it only cut the backing of the fur and NOT the fur itself as your numbers won’t be very hairy… the long hair is what makes it all glam-like so don’t give your fur a haircut! Haha. (My pics show areas that I went a little crazy on and gave it an accidental trim. Oops.)
- Spray the numbers and not the fur backing. This is so the fur won’t stick together. Just spritz a light coat of the adhesive on each paper mâche number then line up your cut piece of fur and push it over the top of the number. Hold for a few seconds and voila! Done.
Repeat 3 more times.
Note: Although cutting the fur can be a bit messy, is super E A S Y to make and worth busting out the lint roller and vacuum afterwards. (Just don’t wear black when DIYing this part, haha!)
On my JOANN run I grabbed some cute decor from the wedding aisle and paired my fur numbers with a strand of gold dots, pinwheels, and gold banner. I spruced up some striped paper straws with gold shimmery card stock from JOANN and paired it with some punched out silver stars.
Our easy DIY Fur Numbers are just not only perfect for a New Years Eve display but also a party. Imagine a 1-years old birthday party and the 12″ fur number 1 next to a smash cake OR a 25th wedding anniversary party and the fur numbers 25 are the center of attention when the couple is taking photos. Cute, right?
