I’ve been decorating with gold this spring, and I was tickled to find this cute gold owl decorative knob by Darice. I paired it with some pretty gold accented paper to create a glam DIY wall organizer. This piece looks great and will help you get your small items organized!
- Darice Wood Shadow Box with Trays
- Darice Decorative Knobs
- DCWV Gilded Paper Stack
- Darice Corks
- Xyron Creative Station or Adhesive
- Gold Spray Paint
- Darice Scissors or Paper Trimmer
Step 2. Trim papers from the gilded paper stack into squares. The two large squares measure 5.5 inches, and the smaller squares are each 2.75 inches square. I used three different patterned papers for my project.
Step 3. Use the Xyron Creative Station to add adhesive to the back of the paper squares. Attach the square papers to your DIY wall organizer. You can use other adhesive to attach your papers if you don’t have the Xyron station.
Step 4. Use a sharp tool to poke a hole in the wide end of the cork. Then carefully screw the decorative knob into the cork. Twist until the cork meets the end of the ceramic knob, leaving a bit of the screw exposed at the end. Repeat this with the other knob.
Step 5. Use a sharp tool to make a hole in the wood of the shadow box. (You could use a drill, too, but the wood is light enough that I was able to use an awl to make a hole.) Insert the screw end of the knob in the hole, and tighten the bolt as pictured to hold the knob in place.
The knobs are perfect for holding bracelets or for wrapping necklaces around them. The smaller squares are great for rings or small knick knacks. Have fun crafting and getting organized with your custom made DIY wall organizer!
Another way to use this shadow box piece is to create a photo display like in this baby photo shadow box DIY project.
