Noel Shaker Home Decor
You can customize any wooden word from Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, etc into amazing home decor with the help of Buttons Galore's unique buttons and embellishments. This Noel sign was intended to be a table centerpiece this holiday season!
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 didn't mind purchasing it for the purpose of altering it.
FINAL PROJECT BY: JENNIFER SNYDER
I jazzed up a plain wooden NOEL plaque with Creative Embellishment's amazing chipboard Berry Wreath Frame to make a joyful holiday shaker.
Below are the before and after images of the wreath fame. 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 tabletop.
Crafting Tip: I save acrylic from packaging so I have a stash of acrylic on hand but you can also purchase acrylic sheets to make your own shakers.
The shaker mix...
These beautiful Doo Dadz are from Buttons Galore and More Embellishments collection: Merry Mimosa. This is a rich red mixture of sequin pieces that can be used as perfect finishing touches on projects.
The berry wreath is round and the "O" is oval which means I had to cut the chipboard. The chipboard was also the perfect cover to hide the acrylic glued to the wood.
