We had an event where we needed to make a backdrop with a Christmas Theme and we included a fireplace in it. We took a fake fireplace we purchased at a thrift shop for $12.00. We painted it and then added a piece of plywood to cover the firebox opening and glued slices of wood on it.
- White paint
- Slices of wood
- Paint the fireplace hearth
- Lightly paint over the bricks
- Attach plywood over the firebox opening
- Glue different size slices of wood onto the plywood
This fireplace worked out great and really added to the backdrop.
