Depending on the size of the fireplace you decide for the size of the bricks and then cut a sponge piece of the same size. With the help of the spongepiece make bricks. Draw a log on a stand and colour it with brown. For the flames you can either use glitters or simply cut and crush aluminium foil and stick it.

2. Christmas Tree
