Frugal Friday: Make a Christmas fireplace

I have seen this photo in several groups on facebook. It is such an amazing clever idea and so cheap to make. I do not know who originally made this so can not link them. If anyone knows please do tell me.

Like many parents, I do not have a fireplace. We buy a key that the kids think Santa uses to get into our house. The whole idea of Santa dropping down the chimney, putting presents under the tree and in their stockings is magical and I've always hated that we couldn't take part in that. This year though thanks to whoever thought this up, we will be giving the kids something extra special to be excited about :)

Small shops will still give cardboard boxes for free. If you ask them for large ones you may well get them for nothing at all in one go. The paper is cheap enough - lining paper is only a couple of quid and the paint is easily sourced in 99p shops. My kids would love this! One craft  I will defiantly be trying this year :)
