If you don't have a fireplace, but still want to hang stockings and decorate a mantel, you can craft one out of cardboard! Using cardboard display boards (ones students use for science projects), you can build a realistic (and lightweight) fireplace.
Upside down wine glasses with small Christmas ornaments and garland in bottom and taped then hand glittered candles for on top. Beautiful and elegant centerpiece! Use anything in the bottom for other occasions! THE GLITTERED CANDLES ADD A NICE SPARKLE!
