Easy DIY Project: Fabric Covered Custom Cabinet Knobs

I have been working on all of the finishing touches in my new home office, and I have not been able to find any knobs for all of my storage cabinets that I liked.  I have looked everywhere, and nothing seemed to be just right.  When I found a pile of fabric scraps in one of my drawers, I came up with the perfect solution!  I decided to take some plain knobs and decoupage them into knobs that coordinate perfectly with my new office decor. 🙂  I love the end result!  Here’s what I did:

1.  Found some plain, inexpensive knobs that were the right size.  I used pink ceramic knobs.

2.  Covered a knob with a layer of decoupage glue (I used glossy Mod Podge).

3.  Covered the knob with a scrap of fabric, and wrapped a tiny rubber band around the fabric to keep it in place.

4.  Added an exterior coat of decoupage glue all over outside of fabric and let dry.  Repeated with a second coat after approximately 20 minutes.

5.  Once all of the knobs were dry, I removed the rubber bands and trimmed off any excess fabric.

6.  Attached knobs to my cabinets!
