Okay, can you BELIEVE that these doorknob plates are not real antiques? I haven’t been this pleased with a replica in a long while. These babies are fantastic. I love re-purposing antique-y things into something of function. These doorknob plates sparked an idea for a DIY necklace holder that would not only display some fun pieces but would also look lovely on the wall.
- Darice Doorknob Faceplates – I used White, Tarnished Metal, and Antique Copper.
- Darice Decorative Knobs – I used Pink Glass Flower, Black and White Ceramic, and Faceted Crystal.
- White Craft Paint
- Darice 20 X 10.5″ Unfinished Pallet Sign
- Darice Foam Paint Brush
- Cordless Drill with Phillips Bit
The doorknob plates come finished, and with a space for the cabinet pull to be screwed in. I opted to leave the pulls long, with a long “throat” for necklaces to hang on. This way, I didn’t have to drill through the wood to make room for the screw.
Next, I laid out the doorknob plates to determine the placement that I liked for my DIY necklace holder. Then I used the included screws (four small Phillips head screws per doorknob plate) to drill them into the pallet sign.
These vintage knobs can also be used to make decorative DIY jars.
