We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

Mantel decorations. Santa squeezing down the chimney. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. The holidays seem to revolve around cozy fireplaces, but you don’t have to miss out on the fun just because your home or apartment is flame-free.

Chalkboard Fireplace

This whimsical take on a traditional fireplace is made from a drop cloth, drapery hardware and chalkboard paint. Draw on a raging fire and pin up your family’s stockings. After the holidays, it can double as a removable chalkboard for the kids!

No mantel? You can fake that, too. And if these ideas leave you cold, you can warm up with our cozy yule log video. Stay toasty out there!
