My cardboard fireplace for the Weekly Make It Challenge
on Instructables.com. This week's challenge was to make something from a leftover Christmas box.
Here's my entry and how I did it:
Get a box.
Draw an upside-down "U" on the front.
Cut it out using an X-acto knife or scissors (careful dummy!)
Paint faux bricks on box using non-toxic acrylic craft paint.
Fill in remainder with grey paint (optional).
Draw the outline of a flame on another piece of cardboard and cut it out.
Arrange fireplace and flames and decorate inside with red christmas lights for the fire.
Step 6. Enjoy!
Someday I'll have a real life fireplace until then it's cardboard and christmas lights for me.
