The talented owners of this home crafted a whimsical smoke cutout to cover their empty firebox. Inspired, I decided to make one of my own.
List of materials-
1 sheet of foamcore (36″ x 48″)
exacto knife or box cutter
pencil, craft paints, markers and paint brushes
1. Measure your firebox so that your design will fit. Begin by using a pencil to lightly draw out your smoke onto the foam core.
2. Carefully cut it out with an exacto knife on a hard surface such as a work bench.
3. Now have fun with paints and markers drawing in cartoon-like details.
4. Place inside firebox. I simply leaned mine against the existing wood pile.
