  • Try using candy melts or almond bark to avoid your decoration being too fragile and breaking off eventually. Just choose any of the two that you might be comfortable with or try them out separately and decide on the best fit for you.
  • Sprinkling disco dust on your number can give it a sparkly look. You like it sparkling, don’t you? Colored candy melts too can give a very good result.
  • In addition to the materials mentioned already, other tools you might require are lollipop sticks for straight numbers or floral wire to make curvy designs, straight blade, some disposable icing bags, a paint brush and corn syrup for your sparkle touch.
  • You need to get the template for your intended number to guide you in getting the right shape and size. You could sketch your intended number on a paper.
  • Cut out a block of your almond bark and put at the bottom part of the disposable bag. Let the tip be intact.
  • Leave your bag in a microwave to heat up for 30 seconds. The almond bark melts completely.
  • Slice off a tiny bit from the end of the bag.
  • Lay a reverse image of your sketch on a flat tray preferably and put tiny piece of wax paper over it. Then use your almond bark to fill all spaces in a trace outline of your number. The likely rough edges can be cleaned up later.
  • Put your lollipop stick through the middle of your number and ensured it is tightly in place.
  • Allow your number solidify in the refrigerator for about ten minutes; lift off from the wax paper.
  • Trim the edges with your blade to clean up.
  • Sprinkle the disco dust on it, after coating the surface with corn syrup, using your brush
