"K" is for Knob Place Cards

Paint: wood knob place cards

Make these simple place card holders using wood knobs and a little gold spray paint to add some glam to your Spring table.
Those red cabinets in our kitchen are getting a serious makeover and the first thing to go are the wood knobs.  

Spray painted gold and now they're little golden nuggets that work perfectly as place card holders:

I'll be using them as food table labels for a first communion party in the next few weeks.

How to make painted knob place cards:

1. Predrill hole in center top of knob:

2. Select desired paint, I used gold spray paint, and paint the knobs:

3. Wrap masking tape around plier teeth so as not to scratch or mar the paperclip coating.
Using pliers unbend the paperclip to a straight shape:

4. Grasp one end of the straight paperclip in the pliers and wrap in a circular motion around the plier teeth:

5. Determine desired height of paper clip holder:

And cut off excess if necessary:

6. Stick end of paperclip into E-6000 adhesive then shove down into predrilled hole in knob:
