    Looks great. You can get some pieces of wood and put white string lights with some orange tissue paper fire.

    I did something like this last year when I was in an apartment. The only thing that cost more was the brick wallpaper I got from Hobby Lobby. Yours looks way better than mine.

    I made a similar chimney last year from dollar store supplies (besides the brick paper.)
    Dollar store has black project board I put at the back so it’s like the back of it was black, can put a little fire in the front from fabric or something 😀

    Either way, nice job!

    We did this the last couple years because we didn’t have a fireplace! It actually became a permanent installation in the kids room.

    I used scrap wood to make a frame so the stockings wouldn’t pull it over, and for anyone else who’s doing it this year and doesn’t want to buy the paper: if you mix sand with red paint (add a little brown to it) you can use a sponge to make a realistic brick print. The sand gives it a realistic texture.

    Yours looks awesome! Good job!

    That’s so creative and well executed, you really have a knack for crafts/decorating!

    Yea! That’s awesome! My parents did this for my brother and me, way back in the 90’s. We got a bunch of construction paper and cut it all out together. I remember it vividly. I’m sure your children will remember this for a long time, too.

  13. Nothing wrong with that. People that can spend ridiculous amounts of money on everything are rare.

    SO CUTE! Great job, OP!

    After living here for 25 years, pre epidemic, we finally got one. I thought they might take it away, but no. Before, we had to go to Wyoming or Colorado. So many odds and ends and surprises. Love this store.
