I've been working on making a mod hanging fireplace for the 70's A-frame that I'm working on. I hope it will look something like this:
As you may know, I'm a little bah humbug about the commercialism of Christmas, but there is one good thing: cheap Christmas ornaments that you can make miniatures out of.
I found this ornament for 88 cents.
Cut the end with the hole off. Then filed and sanded the edges smooth.
Then I cut a piece of PVC pipe my husband had laying around. It wasn't easy getting the angle just right. Then I glued them together.
I will hang like this. I will paint the inside a flat black and add some logs. I'm contemplating making it light up. I'm not sure what color the outside will be. Probably orange. I'm pleased how it is turning out
