Drawer Pulls: Day 23 of 31

Greetings! It's Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I am sharing a project for my kids' room. Last year, we decided to deck the room out in sugar skulls. In a never-ending quest to add more to the room, I decided to change out a few of the drawer pulls on their dressers. Just a few here and there.

The pulls are just like the ones that came on the drawers, so they will look nice when I switch them out. These handles are from Home Depot, and they were pretty inexpensive. I painted them in a pearly white paint. Then, I used the largest sugar skull from the Sugar Skulls Bombshell stamp set, and stamped it with StazOn ink on too tissue paper. Then, I colored them with Sharpies. The Sharpie ink bled a bit on the tissue paper, so I had to re-stamp a few of them.

I sealed them off with a gloss varnish, and the tissue paper doesn't show at all. Using that made it very simple, as opposed to trying to stamp the image over the curve of the drawer pulls. My kids are really happy with them, and  I think they look good. I can't wait for the varnish to cure so that I can add them to the room. I think I will be making a few more. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogger. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I was wondering how you got
the stamp around the curve
until I read the description.

The knobs look fantastic..
Happy kids, happy life.

These are wonderful! I can imagine putting these
in every room of the house. Wouldn't match the d├ęcor,
but who cares!?! They're so fun!
