How to make a fun yarn fireplace insert…

As many of you know, I have  a faux fireplace. My dream house some day will have a real fire place,but for now I am going to have to warm myself by a wool fire 🙂

It was fun to make this insert for the house walk.

I used a large piece of 3 x 4 ft.black foam core from the craft store. It was the perfect size for my opening.

I let it dry flat. I also recommend cleaning up any extra glue or you might see it once it dries.
