This beautiful DIY project idea by The Crafty Couple on YouTube is probably one of my favorite DIYs, since the winter season is almost here, I thought of making a fire pit that I can put on top of the table literally anywhere in the house. The design of these fire pits also makes great decor and definitely adds a whimsical and cozy touch to the house. If you also want to give this a try, then watch this video tutorial to learn how, and run to the nearest Dollar store to purchase the supplies you’ll be needing.
Fire pit #1
Stain the tumbling tower blocks, then while waiting for them to dry, lay 4 stir sticks beside each other, place about 8 blocks along the sides, and pivot one block on each end. Mark where it ends, then cut the excess end of each stick, and hot glue the cutout pieces underneath the base to serve as the brace. Flip it over, then adhere the blocks along the sides using hot glue, and add another row making sure to offset them to create a pattern. For the ends, mark where the block exceeds, then cut it off, and adhere it with hot glue. Continue building the layer of blocks until the tray is about 4 rows high. Stain along the sides of the base as well, then place 3 fuel canisters inside the tray spacing them evenly, and spread the rest of the stained blocks inside the tray. Fill it with white rocks until all spaces are covered and then light it up.
Fire pit #2
Coat the bowl with white paint, then let it dry completely, and add 2 more coats letting them dry in between each addition. Slightly stain the entire bowl using a clean rag or cloth to give it some depth, then once dry, fill the bottom of the bowl with rocks to flatten it out, add a fuel canister at the center, and fill it around with more rocks until nicely covered. Place it anywhere you like and light it up.
Fire pit #3
Remove the piece at the back of each sign used for hanging, then stack two sign frames together with their right sides facing up, and adhere them together using hot glue, this will be the base. Remove the backing of the 2 remaining sign frames completely leaving only the frames themselves, then stack them on top of the base with hot glue, and place a fuel canister inside. Fill the inside with rocks and light it up.
