In November 2018, I decided to follow through with an idea that I’d been mulling over for a few years.
I wanted to make a cardboard fireplace that simulated a roaring fire. Why? Because I like making things and making things with my hands is especially satisfying!
I started the project in November and over the course of my 2-week holiday in December, I focused on building this thing.
It created some great ambiance for the holidays. The tissue paper actually simulated a light crackling and it was pretty nice.
- Mini lights
- Tissue paper
- Small USB powered fan
attached to a portable power bank
Below are some progress shots and the finished video.
I can’t tell you what’s in store for this thing but it takes up entirely too much room in my small apartment. One day, I may take it somewhere safe and light a real fire in it.
