It's Dangerous to go Alone - Make this Legend of Zelda-inspired fireplace
We had a ton of paint chips from when we painted our doors and shelves in shades of red, orange, and yellow. Instead of tossing the free paint chips, we made them into this 8-bit fire! If you don't have paint chips, you can also use construction paper or card stock.

We didn't actually have a fireplace in our home to begin with, but found the mantel/surround on Craigslist for $30. It was in rough 90's shape, but a ton of sanding and painting fixed it right up.
