When our eldest son graduated high school I made photo numbers to use as graduation party decor.  I used photos from every one of his high school years to cover each number. Every number represented a different year. The number “two” was covered in Freshmen photos followed by the number “zero” patched with Sophomore memories. Our graduate’s Junior year covered the number “one” and finally the “three” showcased his Senior year.

These photo covered numbers would work just as well for birthday parties using either the age or the birth year of the guest of honor.  And another super cute idea would be to cover letters of the birthday girl or boy’s name to display later in their bedroom.

Party Décor | Photo Mod Podge Numbers

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
Numbers or Letters
Photos
Mod Podge Glue
Optional: Mod Podge Sealer, Hot Glue & Pennies

I found paper mache numbers at my local craft store.  After selecting the photos I wanted to use I organized them in a doc so that several photos would print per page.  I printed my photos on regular printer paper.

After I cut out every photo I used Mod Podge glue to attach each photo onto the numbers creating an overlapping collage.  Once the numbers were wrapped in photos I used a paint brush to smooth Mod Podge over the photos as a sealant.  The brushstrokes will show so I suggest using long, even strokes.  After the  Mod Podge was completely dry (a few hours)  I sprayed a layer of Mod Podge sealant over the photos to ensure the edges of my photos would not lift.

After the numbers were completed dried I hot glued a few pennies to the bottoms of each one to help weight them and keep them from tipping over.

The result – AWESOME.  Our son absolutely loved and appreciated having his high school years reflected on his graduating year, 2013. I also received countless compliments from guests at his graduation party. They were a hit all around and they now sit on a shelf in his bedroom and serve as room décor.
