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!
- Silicone mold
- Two-part resin
- HT400 Heat Gun
- Pressed leaves
- Skewer sticks
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.
Use a Wagner HT400 heat gun to remove any air bubbles from the resin.
Wait for 15-20 minutes and then add the pressed leaves to the resin. Then layer more resin over the leaves.
Use the Wagner HT400 heat gun again to pop any remaining bubbles.
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.
After the 24-hour cure time has passed, you can safely remove the knobs from the molds.
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.
