5-minute Designer Cabinet Knobs

When I made these knobs and texted a photo to my hubby, he called me from his trip: “They look amazing! But no one is going to be able to make them…”
Then I realized because I was always drawing and painting, he thought I PAINTED them.
Well, these may look like hand painted ceramic knobs, but the secret is- they are the easiest things to make, no painting involved. I will share with you all the designs so you can make your own set.
They are made with the same method as these designer outlet covers. You can check out this tutorial and download the free designs here!
Start with $1 wooden knobs and plastic wrap- a new use for plastic wrap...
Print and cut out the designs on paper. You can download the printable designs I made for these knobs at the end.
Brush Modpodge (or glue) onto the paper cutout and the knobs. Take a piece of plastic, wrap around the knob as you press the paper and shape it along the curved surface of the knob.
Peel the plastic off. Here's our knob! Let dry and brush some more Modpodge for extra durability.

    Homemade Modge Podge. You need 1 cup of glue (white Elmer’s glue) and 1/3 cup of water. These proportions are perfect – don't mess with them. You don’t need to buy Modge Podge.

      When my mother-in-law taught me how to decoupage 50 years ago, there was no ModPodge. Instead we used Elmer’s Glue and water!

    Thanks for a wonderful idea. My apartment has really horrible knobs from the 1960’s. I am definitely going to do this. Please let me know how you get a flat sheet of paper to curve around the knob. Thanks!

      Make circle paper larger than the knobs. Make 4 small clips on circled paper edge. This will enable paper to bend around the edge of wood.
