December is a great time to make some festive decorations. If you do not have a fireplace, make this craft with the kids to add to the decor. It is very simple to make and very festive-looking. Feel free to make a bigger one if you do have a bigger box.


Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
A box (I used a cereal box)
White and red A4 paper
Glue
Scissors
A compass
Ruler
Pencil
Yellow, orange and red paper (for the fire)

Method
Cover the box with the white paper using glue.
Let to dry. Then make the fireplace's opening by marking with the ruler and pencil. Make the semi-circle using a compass or a round plate.
Carefully cut and trim around.
Cut the red papers in small rectangles for the bricks.Place the red bricks on the box for a preview and then glue.

Make the fire by scrunching the yellow, orange and red papers and put inside the opening.
Decorate your fireplace and it is ready.
