Christmas Chimney

If you find yourself lacking in the fireplace department come this Christmas, fill the spot with this lovely chalkboard hearth instead. It’s a DIY mantle to hang stockings on (and a chimney for Santa to shimmy down) — and it couldn’t be simpler to make!

Step 1

Step 2

Hang up the canvas, using a curtain rod and ribbon.

Step 3

Hang stockings by the faux fireplace, and hope that Santa will soon be there!
