DIY Christmas Fireplace Finish - Decorating

Our beautiful fireplace is finished. This is not a hard project at all, just  use your imagination and decorate to make this look realistic. Below are all the measurements. Watch the video to see just how easy everything comes together. Enjoy and please share your finished projects in our members room.

I made my fireplace using black medium weight chipboard. The mini lights I used I purchased from Amazon I think I got 6 sets for around $10. The little battery operated tea lights I got from Amazon as well, I purchase the packs of 24 and they are around $10 this last me a long time. The punch I used for the garland was an old Martha Stewart punch, can't remember where I got it but here is a link to one just like it. . As for the paper I used the same as I did on our lantern, the beautiful Graphic 45 Winter Wonderland.
