  1. Nice, very creative. I put my tree and decorations up early before Thanksgiving I love Christmas and all the lights I want to enjoy them as much as I can till the second week in January. Most of all because It's Baby Jesus Birthday XOXO

  2. Tradition is that we put up the tree on Thanksgiving evening after a huge Thanksgiving lunch and naps but for the last few years it hasn't gone this way, sadly, and we seem to get the tree up and decorations out later and later.

  3. I Remember Having A CardBoard Fire Place In The House That I Grew Up In. I Am Glad That I Came Across Your DIY Project Channel First So I Decided To Watch, And Low And Behold… You Actually Made A Real Looking Fireplace. Thnx!!!!

  4. I've always had this idea in the back of my mind but now that I see the actual process and result…. I think I'm good. I'm a lazy crafter, I can't be doing all this

  5. I think this is super cute, you did a great job . Ty for sharing. I put my tree up two weeks after Halloween

  6. Well done, you! This project reminded me of a cardboard fireplace we had when I was growing up because we lived in an apartment and didn't have a real fireplace. This made me so nostalgic, I think I may build one for myself! Thank you for all the details; it actually looks like a lot of fun.

  7. How many inches was the flat screen? I don't have our flat screen box anymore, used it to make a piñata :3.

  8. You could do one over your tv so then you can put it on a channel that has a fireplace going
