    Personally, I don’t like the mirrors… Other than that it’s just that your fireplace is a totally different style than the other one, and you would need more candles (even with the mirror).

    I agree–you’d need more candles, and I’d take the mirror out (unless it’s permanently attached, of course). It’s a gorgeous idea!!

    You need to use the full height of your fireplace but not the depth. Taller mirrors and bring them forward.

    More candles for sure, but I actually like the mirror reflecting light out into the room.

    She appears to be using a piece of furniture painted to look like a fireplace, but actually much more shallow than a real fireplace.

    Taller mirrors and more candles would have looked much better. I did something like this and used a metal candle holders in different heights and looked nice.

    I did this in my non-working fireplace and it was a win. You just need like 3x more candles. I usually only lit about half at a time to avoid gross melting from all the heat. You can also add in a fireproof object as a focal point and get away with less candles. Almost there!

    I did this in our old fireplace and it worked great. But I used 21 candles, from small to large (largest was 35cm tall). IKEA has a multipack of 7 in different sizes you can add. Just throw in A LOT more, and it will work. Good luck 🙂

    Try larger candles. Scented Candles would hide nicely in there and give your home a beautiful smell.

    It looks like you’re summoning satan XDDDD

    Your problem seems to be that you only used 4 short candles. The Pin had 9-10 candles in varying heights. Just buy more candles.
