    I just cut an oversized "5" and a "0" out of foam core and covered it in b/w xerox copies of my favorite photo's of my husband. Trimmed off the excess parts of the pictures and hung it up. Super simple. Just know you'll need like 75 pictures or so. Thanks.

    Hi Asia, If you go back and era the previous comments, you'll read that I cut the oversized numbers out of foam core. Adhesive? I just used scrapbooking adhesive I had on hand. Thanks!

    Hi @Unforgettably Sweet. I completely apologize for not responding sooner. We had a VERY difficult holiday season with my mother in ICU through Thanksgiving until 1 week before Christmas. So I haven't even really been on the computer. This container is just something I picked up at the Hobby Lobby. I'm sorry I can't provide a better description.

    The largest size foam core at hobby lobby is 36x48. I max'd the height as close to 48" as possible.

    With what did you attach the #'s to the wall? Wanting to put up in a hotel reception room and can't use thumb tacks.

    Stacy T wrote:

    Hi Sigrid. I actually used fishing line and strung it up to the ceiling with a thumb tack for ea. We have a bead board ceiling with moulding all the way around. BUT, 3M Command Hooks (smooth walls ) are your best friend when you cannot use a thumb tack. They really do come off without wall damage.

    Great, thanks for your help. Do you happen to know where you found the large stencil template to print out on the computer?

    Stacy T wrote:

    I printed the numbers as big as I could, and using my overhead projector, I enlarged them onto the foam core.

    Sigrid H wrote:

    Very good. Don't have an overhead projector. Hope I can do a great job like yours.

    Stacy T wrote:

    Instead of an overlay, trace the numbers onto a large ziplock back Maybe you could go to a local school and see if you could just borrow one for a few minutes. (FYI) I also used the large 36 x 48 foam board from Hobby Lobby and maxed the size on the board. Good Luck. I'm sure it's going to be great! These were definitely a hit!!
