Door Knob Crafts

I have been to several flea markets and antique stores and have seen so many different door knobs for sale.  The beauty of the old glass knobs has me tempted to switch out all of our knobs at home but this wouldn’t be real practical and I have never seen a whole set of matching knobs anyway. Since I wouldn’t be switching out my knobs, it got me thinking about door knob crafts. There are lots of ways to use these knobs decoratively in a home. So, I came up with a collection of door knob crafts that would be fun to try.

      Good luck with your project :)!
