8 DIY Firepit Ideas to Beautify Your Backyard

I don’t know if there’s anything better than sitting around a bonfire eating toasty marshmallows and listening to crackling wood. My unlucky soul, however, lives in an apartment and can’t enjoy such pleasures unless someone else is throwing a party. I’ll keep dreaming though. Here are just a few inspiring fire pits I can’t keep off my third-floor-living mind.

1) Do you have a unique landscape feature that goes unused? Convert it into a fire pit! Lucy couldn’t keep the fish in her koi pond because of predators. Instead of constantly restocking, she let the water-feature dry out. Now it makes a beautiful addition to her patio.

2) This DIY brick fire pit saved blogger Jim a pretty penny, costing only $1.35. Most of the materials were leftovers scrapped from project sites. Check out Jim’s step-by-step guide on how to create this unique inground fire pit.

3) This tabletop fire pit is so neat. Karen shows us the detailed steps for making this portable fire pit on her blog, The Art of Doing Stuff. She goes as far as creating the glass enclosure and teaching us a cool trick with a spaghetti noodle.

4) If you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, this project is for you. From Man Made, a postmodern male’s hands-on creativity blog, Chris shows readers how to create a concrete fire pit from scratch. Those who take on this project will really enjoy Chris’s detailed explanations and images.

5) Morgan Satterfield of the Brick House needed to replace a failed attempt at a DIY cinder block fire pit. Testing out a new skill she picked up from friends, Morgan explains a basic welding project to create this sleek, square fire pit.

6) This artistic DIY mosaic fire pit is perfect for the bold-color lover. Kristy O, of 3 Peppers, provides detailed steps of laying the pavers, creating the pit, and choosing the mosaic tiles for her Florida backyard project.

7) Giving old items new purpose is an art form. Sarah, creator of House and Fig, has that art mastered. She shows us in just seven steps how to turn a washing machine drum into a DIY fire pit. Talk about an upcycle.

8) Making a fire pit multipurpose isn’t something you’ll hear too often. Robin and Mike from All Things Heart and Home had a stellar idea to use their fire pit for not one, not two, but three purposes! Check out the how-to on this fire pit/tabletop/game board.

Greet the heat and get started on building these DIY fire pits so you can enjoy their flames all summer long and well into the fall. Have a marshmallow or two for me!

Until next time,

  1. Incredible ideas love them. especially the one with the brick. Thanks for sharing. Come and check my website for more decoration for your backyard. http://www.gardendecorplanet.com

  2. Wood burning backyard firepits should be banned due to the toxic chemicals emitted from them. The gas firepits are a better option. You should be better informed on the damage caused by wood fires. There are noted doctors in Utah trying to bring this to the attention of the public. Please stop encouraging pollution that is very damaging to our lungs and to wildlife. This is a contributor to climate change. And it is totally unnecessary.

  3. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost mpved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how youu presented it. Too cool!

  4. I would just like to say, that I wish some people would get off the Green ban wagon.. we’ve been burning wood for a million years and more .. go after the companies of pesticides and other toxic sprays.. your hair spray for instance and perfumes that make me gag.. God if I hear another person bring up the subject of “Climate Change” I’m going to poke my own eyes out.. This is in regards to the article below that was posted above..
    Thank You
