My daughter came to me a few months back. In her hand was a necklace, a necklace that I personally quite liked. Except now, it was in a wad of a knot. And that knot took me a good hour to undo, but I finally did. Only to find it a month later, in yet another knot. Not again. Not with our DIY Framed Cork Knob Organizer made with the help of Plasti Dip Craft.
Plasti Dip Craft is an amazing new product on the market that forms an air-dry, specialty rubber coating. Like spray paint, but way better as Plasti Dip protects against moisture, acids, abrasion, corrosion, and skidding or slipping while providing a comfortable, control grip and rubberized texture. So it’s perfectly able to stand up to the unruliness that can be a child’s room.
And Plasti Dip makes the perfect coating for the knobs in our DIY Framed Cork Knob Organizer. I wanted something tougher than spray paint, where whatever we stored on it might slip and scuff at the surface. Plasti Dip holds it all in place.
To make our DIY Framed Cork Knob Organizer you will need an 8×10 frame and a sheet of cork cut to fit. The cork I used is from a coaster project a long time ago, with octagon shapes. I like the way this looks as it lets the paper underneath come through for more interest, but you could always just use a regular sheet of cork. And if you use the same kind of cork as I am, it would be fun to experiment with different colors of paper, too.
Then, you will need 4 random cabinet knobs, though I started with 5 knobs because I wasn’t quite sure how many I would need, along with your choice of color Plasti Dip Craft. We chose Gulf Coast Blue as it goes best with my daughter’s room, but Plasti Dip Craft comes in 7 colors and 3 enhancers: Crisp White, Lemon Yellow, Tin Roof Red, Pumpkin Spice, Midnight Black, Gulf Coast Blue, Gator Green, Glossifier Enhancer, Silver Metalizer Enhancer, and White Pearlizer Enhancer. What’s great is that PlastiDip Craft is is peelable so you can fix mistakes, mix and match, or switch up colors whenever you want a new look. And we’re keeping Tin Roof Red, Pumpkin Spice, and Gator Green on hand, too, for just that reason.
While we’re using this DIY Framed Cork Knob Organizer to store my daughter’s necklaces, bracelets, and headbands, it would also be a great entryway key hook or fun to hold supplies in the bathroom. And because it’s cork, the top of the organizer is a great place to keep little notes and cards.
DIY Framed Cork Knob Organizer
- 8×10 white frame
- cork sheet, cut to fit
- 4 cabinet knobs, assorted
- Plasti Dip Craft – choice of color
- Wide ribbon
- Paper – white or choice of color
- Hot glue
- Spare rectangle of cardboard
- Pointy-tipped screw
Begin by gathering a spare piece of cardboard.
Poke knob screws through cardboard, spaced a few inches apart, and screw on knobs. Take to a well-ventilated area, I went outside, and spray your first coat of Plasti Dip Craft according to package directions.
I needed 3 coats for our knobs. Let dry for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
Remove glass from frame. Cut cork to fit frame. Insert paper and back of frame. Secure in place.
Since knob screws have a flat tip, you will need a screw with a pointed tip to screw through layers of cork, paper, and back of frame. Once through, remove and reinsert knob screw through the back of the frame. Screw knob in place. Repeat for all 4 knobs.
The screws will be slightly protruding on back. Take a piece of ribbon long enough to go from the screw on the end to the screw on the other end, with a loop above the frame. Make sure there’s a few inches leftover on each end of ribbon. Make a vertical snip on both ends of ribbon a few inches from the end and insert over the screws. If needed, trim any excess ends of ribbon. Hot glue the tops of the ribbon against the frame so it lays against the wall.
