We didn’t have a Christmas tree nor any big Christmas lanterns, so where could we put the gifts on Christmas Day? Hmm…. why not build a fireplace!


What you will need:

  • White Cartolina or Bond Paper
  • Brown, red and black paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Red, orange and yellow paper
  • Black cartolina


What you will do:

Step 1: To get that “wood” effect, we painted on white cartolina using the colors Red, Brown and Black. We didn’t mix them prior to painting, we were mixing as we were painting

Step 2: Cut the painted paper into rectangular and square shapes and paste it unto a bigger piece of white or brown paper

Step 3: Decorate your wall the way a fireplace should look




Step 4: Hang your stockings! :)


And of course, we turned it into a photo wall! :)

Happy Holidays EVERYONE!
