My wife reminded me that peak wedding season is starting here in the U.S. This pattern is simple but useful for those who have seating assignments at wedding receptions. 

In the simulated image above I am showing the word numbers painted metallic gold.

An Old but Useful Tip:

As scroll saw users we cut a lot of small parts that need to be glued together. Many times clamping is a challenge. You carefully glue and line up the parts. When you try to install a clamp the pieces slid around and lose alignment. If you don't notice this movement it can be a challenge to fix after the glue cures.

This trick has been around for years but if you are new to woodworking you may have not run across it yet. Salt can be a huge help. Apply the glue and spread it around. Shake just a few flakes of salt in the glue. Don't over-salt the board. Just a very few flakes. Now when you press the parts together the salt will grip the face of each board and help hold it in place.
