Happy Halloween everyone ,

Had so much fun making the Grandfather Clock ( thank you all for the compliments ) from cardboard I decided I needed a fireplace to go with it . Same idea as the clock with the mirror frames,plastic web and skulls from Dollar Store , fake fire from a yard sale ($2) and the Spirit cemetery fence from a garage sale ($2) .





Different camera setting to show the web detail .


Thanks to Halloween Forum and members for providing a great place to learn and share .

You are the master at cardboard conversion!!! Congrats on another fantastic looking project. Where did the picture frames come from that adorn the sides with the skulls in the middle?

I was jealous when you posted the grandfather clock. This has gone too far!
:mad:
In all seriousness, you do amazing work and should be proud of these results.

Thank you all for taking time out of your Halloween clean up to look and comment on the fireplace . Having a great time looking through everyone's posts .

"Saruman of Many Colours:
Very nicely done! Love the finish. How did you achieve the green patina? "

Saruman , I think the green patina is a trick of the camera . wish I could take credit for it .

Frogkid11 , the frames on the sides are the plastic mirror frames from Dollarama . I removed the mirrors , repainted , added tabs to the back to push through the cardboard and glued them on .

Here is a photo of the fireplace lit with webbing and lighting . Lots more added to the scene but still transferring pictures from camera .


Looking forward to seeing all of your pictures once the dust settles from this years Halloween .

Scarybella , cardboard is definitely priced right , can't beat free . I think next year will be a cardboard collapsed wall .
