To formally introduce, we are no designers, no highflying architects, no technocrats, and no geeks. WeekendTinkers says in order to make these awesome resin knobs, you have to know how to handle poisonous and harmful substances and materials.
Rhonda over at Dollar Store Crafts must have a cooler life than I do because she had champagne corks lying around, woke up one day and made knobs out of them. Using Button Cover Kits, JCaroline Creative made these lovely tangerine colored drawer knobs. Keep clicking, kiddo, because on page two there are even more knobs you can make… and they are awesome sauce. This piece of hand me down furniture looks nice in this photo, but the top and left side have cracks in them. Step Three: To create the post for the knobs, stack two small circles on top of each other, smoothing out the edges with your finger. To install the draw knobs, I was able to use the original screws from this dresser, simply twisting the new knobs into place with the assistance of a screw driver. These drawer knobs were so easy to make, I keep thinking about what other kinds of knobs our house needs.
Step Four: Using the drill bit that's the same size as your knob screws, create the holes in the back of your knobs.
I began with this sweet antique engraving of a bird on a branch, which I converted to a silhouette.
Step 1: Go HERE to download the PDF sheet for this project, and print it out on your computer.
Step 2: Paint your knobs with the primer first (I did 2 coats) and then paint with a coat of white paint. Step 4: Cut image into a circle (the circle around the image can be used as a cutting guide) and then soak in a bowl of water for 10-20 minutes.
Step 5: While paper is still wet, rub the paper backing with your fingers in a circular motion to remove all of the paper leaving just the gel transfer behind.
So I have been trying to find the perfect knobs for my dresser and voila, you found them for me! I was trying to finish up a contributor post for Lil' Luna and I had NO time to run over to Hobby Lobby for knobs!
I ran home and rummaged thru my own craft supplies for something I could use to attach them to my shelf! I can’t tell you how often my man-partner has had to point out an incredibly hairy mole on my chin that suddenly came out of nowhere.


I think it was when I turned twenty-one and the champagne came with a a free keyring, or a complimentary condom or something. Can you even stand what kind of crafty genius it takes to think of something like this, much less do it? If you don’t love them awful, I find you to be a highly suspicious character and I feel it my duty as a human to report you to some authority.
So it is no surprise to me that I have had my eye on this vintage typographer gift-wrap ever since Emily over at Jones Design Company posted about it as well as many other pretty papers she uses.
It would need too much work and expense to fix , so I am going to add my own style to it using the gift-wrap and paint. The paint is a mix of whites that I had a bit of each– Sherwin Williams Creamy and Alabaster. They also needed a bit of contrast and I was inspired to add the flat glass beads after seeing glass number knobs at Anthropologie. I figured out the placement of the gift-wrap first and then spread a thick coat of Mod Podge on the top of the dresser where the first sheet would go.
Carefully cut the paper with a mat knife and then use the tip of the knife to hold the paper up so you can get some Mod Podge under the section.  Press it back down and smooth it over. I had to piece the back section as the sheets were not as deep as my dresser.  On the corners I left the excess hang over and then cut a diagonal line to the corner then turned the excess under and used more Mod Podge to make sure it adhered. Roll the clay into a ball, making sure the prettiest gradient you see is facing upwards before you continue to the next step. Make a slight indent on the back of the knob platform (the larger circle) with the small cap, and then gently push the knob post (the two stacked small circles) into the indent. If you don't have a drill bit handy, you can use any type of skewer that is about the same size as your screw. If you find that the hole you make in the knobs isn't wide or deep enough, you can use a drill and an appropriately-sized drill bit to increase its size.

I found that a light coat on just the transfer worked the best, even though you see me putting glue on the knob here, trial and error and all that!

My creative juices started flowing and I picked up some really pretty necklace pendants for 3.00 a piece. Then glue a longer screw or bolt to that to go thru your drawer, put a nut on the back and you are DONE! Was looking for some simple ideas to replace door knobs for cabinets in laundry room, which I just painted – and here it was! The wooden handles on my heirloom dresser finally gave up the ghost, but instead of heading to the store to buy replacements, I thought I'd try my hand at making them!
Add strips of gray clay to the white, smooshing and pulling the clay to somewhat blend the two colors, creating streaks of gray. Just be aware that if you make these for your kitchen, it would be a good idea to seal them with a polymer-safe varnish, like Minwax's Polycrylic.

The Polka Dot Closet says if you can roll a meatball, you can make these completely beautiful cabinet knobs.
It was much easier than I had even expected, and the new handles look just how I had imagined. When cutting the circles, make sure to wiggle the cap in a circular motion, or the clay will end up stuck inside the cap.
If you don't have a drill, you can always just buy some narrower screws to fit the holes. You can subscribe via email so that you dona€™t miss a single post, just click HERE to sign up! Whether you like saving money on furniture updates, or just like to get your hands a little dirty with an easy craft, I promise this little project will not disappoint! Also, if the platform breaks off from the post of the knob, they can be glued together again with super glue.
