Will...

"no genius here"...the base is a 2-inch square piece of corrugated cardboard from the material you find when you strip away the vinyl covers from 3-ring binders...I'll fill in the flutes with a couple of coats of white paint...

Ah, okay. I just really like your "neatness" factor on all of your builds sir. I am always trying to keep mine more organized and cleaner looking as well! :mrgreen:

For now my fireplace is done. Maybe someday Santa may be part of the scene. The stockings are pictures I found and it just so happens they are the very same ones I had as a small child. They are printed on a printable fabric sheet, sewn together with a wool cuff.

The tree store bought is covered with all sorts of things. Some very old, some I made, trinkets I have saved over the years. The skirt is red flannel.

Howard thanks so much for a great project that has been so much fun!!

The tree and the stockings are so perfect for the fireplace. And when it is lit up - unbelievable. An amazing project.
