DIY fire pit


I live on an acre and love any excuse to be outside and enjoy the space. My boyfriend and I wanted to build a bonfire for us and our friends to enjoy smores by the fire. We saw many DIY ideas on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. It came out perfect and everyone loves to enjoy time surrounding the fire!


We purchased these center blocks from Home Depot for $1.15 a piece. I would say purchase 20-36 depending on the size you want. You can use two rows or three rows. We also purchased a bag of gravel for the bottom of the bonfire. You can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size you are trying to achieve. You can purchase a fire pit but they are much more expensive and I like how it was something we made together! 

Place the center blocks in a circular shape or any shape you want. You can stack them right on top of one another or stager them like you would bricks. We used 12 each row and made two rows. We put 6 more on the top like it shows in the pictures but it is not necessary. 

After you put them in place you can fire it up and enjoy time with friends and family and some smores!
