I used 2.5inch wooden letters and 4 different scrapbooking papers, all in shades of pink and green.
I've never covered wooden letters with patterned paper before, so I experimented a little with whether to cut the numbers out first and then stick them on, or to glue them onto the patterned paper and then cut around them with a craft knife. People that have done this before will tell you that the latter definitely works better! Especially if you're using big wooden numbers, where it's impossible to rub out any pencil marks from the middle of the holes after you've drawn around them... I finished the edges of the numbers off with a little pink ink and then glazed them all with Glossy Accents, which has given them a lovely 'tiled' effect.
The numbers are just stuck to the wall with a little piece of white tack, so hopefully there shouldn't be too much damage to the wall when it comes time to take it down.
I have to confess that the scrapbooker in me desperately wanted to decorate the numbers afterwards with ribbons and flowers, so I had to be reined in a little by my other half.
