2021 Table Toppers

Celebrate your Graduate with these 2021 Table Toppers

Give your grad party a little personality with these graduation year table toppers! We all know students take a lot of photos these days, so grab a few from the four years gone by to make this festive decor.  The process is simple, just print, cut and glue and your picture perfect decoration can speak for itself.  So let’s make it!

SUPPLIES:

  • laser printed color photos of the graduate
  • large paper mache numbers
  • Mod Podge glue
  • Mod Podge spray acrylic
  • paper scissors

MAKE IT:

First, print the photos in small, varying sizes and cut them out.  Choose key photos to use as focal points on each number and use the others as filler.

Laser printed color photos

Lay the focal point photos on each number to get an idea of design. As you start gluing the photos on, this may change slightly but it’s helpful to know what key photos you want for each number.

Layout of the paper mache numbers with focal photos

Start by adding a line layer of glue to the first number….

And starting layering your photos on top of the glue. Add another layer of glue over the top to seal.

And when the second number is drying, start adding photos to the backside of the dry number.

covering the entire number with glue and photos

Be sure to cover all the open spaces with photos. You can cut them to fit which gives the design some personality.

Adding the last few touches to complete the look

Finish all the numbers and let them dry overnight. Spray them with a glossy acrylic sealer to add shine. TOP TIP: leave an open area on the bottom of one of the numbers so you can sign it and write a note!
