The humble supplies below came together into one of our favorite projects ever! When we spotted those flame light bulbs- we just knew we had to do something with them. At the time of purchase, we had no idea what to do with them, we just knew we had to use them!
With a little bit of engineering, styrofoam, melamine, toy bricks, and Quikrete mortar mix, we were able to cast the perfect faux fireplace! Take a look at how it came together.
The mold was constructed with faux Duplo bricks, styrofoam, and a piece of plastic tubing all glued into place on a piece of melamine. We are using a Surebonder hot glue gun with a continuous roll of glue! It's so convenient not to have to keep changing out individual glue sticks. The dried hot glue does not stick to the finished mortar so it's perfect to use.
We love everything about our tabletop faux fireplace! It all came together as imagined. The only thing I don't like about it, is it's going to live at Steph's house!
