I love a roaring fire but I hate staring into that big black hole when the fire dies down. Over the years and throughout every season, I’ve had fun coming up with creative ways to dress up my hearth while disguising the fireplace opening. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite creative fireplace screens.
Stack baskets to create height and texture and add a couple of plants for color. Snake plants (also called mother-in-law’s tongue) are one of my favorite, black thumb approved houseplants.

Keep your eyes peeled at flea markets for old wooden chicken crates because they are perfect for adding warmth while disguising the fireplace opening.
An oldie but a goodie is this old window. If you have extra windows, it’s fun to stack them on the mantel too!

This is one of my favorites (and a real oldie as you can see from my old blog name on the photo)! An old chair headed to the dump is the perfect display area for seasonal decor.
My favorite fall mantel of all time is this fun chalkboard art that features my dog Sushi frolicking in a pumpkin patch! An old crate is the perfect “vase” for dried hydrangeas.

Plants are a recurring theme in my hearth decor! My snake plants make a comeback stacked on a blue wooden crate for height.
