Santa's in the Chimney…
This is a quick and easy project that didn't cost me anything!! Come on in and see…
We have a center fireplace that has this small chimney space on one of the sides. The first owner used it for a small wood stove. Over the years this has been the chimney where I would hang the stockings for our cat Hallie and dog Annie. With Annie up in heaven now, I wanted to do something different.
I took my own black rain boots and folded in the sweater trim that was on it.
I removed the white fur trim for 2 old Christmas stockings I had and tacked it on with a small dab of hot glue. You don't need to glue it, because the clamps we'll use later will also keep it on. I just didn't want it to droop.
Now clamp on 2 extra large paper clamps on to each side of each boot.
Keep the clamp handles up and slide a tension rod through all 4.
Now take the 2 stockings that you removed the trim from and roll them up and tuck them into the boots for Santa's "pants".
My fireplace opening has a ledge on either side where I just rested the tension rod, but if you don't, use a tension rod long enough to secure it to the side of your chimney.
Looks like someone ate too many cookies and is stuck in the chimney!!
ps…don't forget to remove anything hanging around the fireplace if you decide to light a fire.
