The holidays are nearing and if you don’t have a fireplace, your kids might be wondering how the heck Santa is going to deliver presents. Well, I’ve got a solution!
You can take all those Amazon boxes and turn them into a fake fireplace for the holidays and it actually looks pretty dang good if you ask me!
How to Make A Fake Fireplace Out of Cardboard:
You will need:
- Cardboard Boxes
- Duct Tape or Packaging Tape
- Adhesive tiles (get some that look like brick or the texture of a fireplace)
You then just take your boxes and tape them into a shape of a chimney. Be sure to secure it with the duct tape to ensure it’s study.
Once the base is made, attach the adhesive tiles all around the boxes and in the end, you’ll have a faux fireplace.
Cardboard is quite sturdy so yuo can even stick lightweight items on it and decorate it for Christmas!
If I didn’t already have 2 fireplaces in my home, I would totally do this! Such a great idea!
There is also one below that looks a bit different but the process is entirely the same. You can check out the video below.
I also love the look of this one, it seems to be a DIY fireplace kit of some kind.
