These big cardboard numbers were for my school’s culmination ceremony.

Lucky for me, all materials were already on hand, but if you had to buy the plaster bandages, I used about 4 rolls which I think would run you about $35 or so.


• Old cardboard
• Xacto knife
• Mini plastic cups
• Craft glue
• Plaster bandages
• Scissors
• Assorted acrylic paint


I think the photos say it all, but let me know if you have any questions. I plan to reuse these for a few years now, updated with one new digit of course.
