Resin Leaf Drawer Knobs

DIFFICULTY: Easy

Overview

I decided that the dresser in my boys’ room needed an update. They love nature and since we collect leaves on our hikes and press them in books, I thought this would be a fun project to use some of the smaller ones. This is a fun and easy project that even your kids can do!

1

Mix resin and pour in mold

After gathering all the supplies, mix equal parts of each bottle into a container and stir until well mixed. Pour enough resin into each mold to cover the bottom.

6

Add screws

It is time to add the screws. I actually used threaded rods since I didn’t want the head of a screw to show through some of the more delicate leaves like the ferns. You can use screws if your leaves are more solid. Using skewer sticks and tape, create a way for the screws to stay upright while the resin hardens.

Cure for 24 hours

After the 24-hour cure time has passed, you can safely remove the knobs from the molds.

Add knobs to dresser

Add the knobs to your dresser for a whole new look! I love how the green leaves look against the navy blue. Best of all, my boys love the new knobs.
