DIY Faux Fireplace using Household Items

Faux-Fireplace-LightsI love the look of a fireplace during the Holidays. It adds a warm and cozy charm to any room especially if it is decorated with garland, lights and filled with flameless candles. Even if you already have a fireplace in your living room, this faux fireplace makes a great addition to any room. It looks so real, your friends and family will have to look at it twice. It is made from all recycled materials and it is very easy to create. You can add your own holiday decorations to make it your own style.
