Happy Summer!! I decided our fireplace needed a little refresh for the summer, a DIY summer fireplace cover. Since we do not use it during this time of the year, I did not hesitate to get creative with covering the fireplace opening with a DIY fireplace cover board!
I purchased an Elmer’s tri-fold foam display board from Walmart and when opened, it was large enough to cover the opening of our fireplace. My husband and I used the folds of the foam board to our advantage to trace the fireplace opening. I held the front and my husband folded one side then took a sharpie and from the inside traced along the brick. Then he folded the opposite side and did the same. From there I took an X-Acto Blister-Carded knife and simply cut along the Sharpie line.
I then took this roll of peel and stick wallpaper from Amazon and covered the foam board. The Peel ansd stick paper was so easy to use. You simply peel the waxy paper from the back and stick it in place. No messy wallpaper glue necessary!
Once the paper was on, I took my scissors and went around to cut the excess off.
Then I used the X- Acto knife to cut closer to the foam board. The paper adhered beautifully to the board and the X- Acto cut the edges perfectly!
From there I simply place it in the fireplace opening and had fun styling the space! I love how summery it looks and how it just brightens up this space.
