Jennifer Snyder here to present an altered wooden plaque that I jazzed up with Creative Embellishment’s amazing chipboard Berry Wreath Frame and transformed into joyful holiday shaker decor.
Below are the before and after images of Creative Embellishments -Berry Wreath Frame with it’s magnificent pine cones.   I left the natural chipboard and applied some snow paste for texture and glitter.

The wooden “noel” was purchased as shown below pre-painted white and sanded for a rustic look.  It’s rather large at 7.5″high, approx 14″ long and an inch wide- so it stands up on a table top.
When I saw the piece at the store, I thought the “O” would look great filled with shaker mix and pine cones.  It was very inexpensive so I don’t mind purchasing for the purpose of altering.
The acrylic for the shakers can be from packaging, or you can purchase sheets of acrylic.   I happen to save acrylic from packaging so I have a stash when I need it.
The berry wreath is round – the “O” is oval – which means I had to cut the chipboard.  The chipboard was also the prefect cover to hid the acrylic glued to the wood.


More photos of the finished project.  The chipboard does such a beautiful job hiding the acrylic edges.

Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy holiday crafting.
