Jennifer Snyder here to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.  Today I am presenting some home decor pieces transformed into magnificent holiday showcases with the help of chipboard and chipboard shakers from Creative Embellishments. 
The chipboard selections featured today are some wonderful frosty designs by CE:
                  snowflake shaker set
                          Creative Embellishments – Snowflake Shaker Set
Large Chipboard snowflakes


Here is the first home decor piece transformed from dull to fabulous by adding a cool shaker to highlight the embellishments.   I kept things really simple by embossing the  CE Snowflake Shaker Set and glueing to the background.
The shaker mix is from Buttons Galore.  They have an amazing assortment to pair with any shaker project.
Here is my quick transformation process:


Shakers are so popular these days.  The CE team is determined to help transform the shaker world by showing  the many alternate ways to use shakers as banners, home decor,  ornaments, and so much more.  Have you checkout out Creative Embellishments ever expanding selection of shakers?

Here are some additional close ups of the piece.  

I used the Maja Design, Holiday in the Alps paper collection for the background of this piece.  The images and patterns in this paper collection are so peaceful and present a calm winter’s night.

A little more about this piece and how it started.  Below is the image of the original home decor seasonal plaque.  Everything is on clearance this time of year and who doesn’t love a Christmas clearance section in the store!  The great thing about the plaque is that it is very deep and thick to make for a perfect shadow box when turned around to the backside.   These are things I think bout when shopping.  It may look like Christmas today, but can this be painted and altered for use as a summer project?   If possible then in the shopping cart it goes.


Here is the second piece; a simple cone tree created by ripping strips of cotton fabric and wrapping around a cardboard cone.  I painted  CE- Large Snowflakes with cream colored acrylic paint and tucked them into the fabric along with some floral berries.
Very simple fast project but I love cone trees.  The tree topper is an old metal piece I had in my stash.



Thank you for stopping here and Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and peaceful 2020.
Creative Embellishments promises even more excitement in 2020 with new possibilities, new monthly challenges and unique designs.
