Resin Leaf Drawer Knobs
Learn how to create natural resin drawer knobs for furniture or doors by using leaves or flowers from outside and a Wagner HT400 heat gun.
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!
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.
Use heat gun to remove bubbles
Use a Wagner HT400 heat gun to remove any air bubbles from the resin.
Add pressed leaves
Wait for 15-20 minutes and then add the pressed leaves to the resin.
Add more resin
Then layer more resin over the leaves.
Pop additional bubbles
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.
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.
