How to Make a Fire Ball Pit
A fire ball pit is a great way to add some warmth and ambiance to your outdoor space. Whether you’re looking for a cozy spot to relax around the fire or an exciting activity for your next backyard gathering, a fire ball pit can be the perfect addition. Here’s how to make one.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You will need several materials to build your fire ball pit, including bricks, sand, gravel, and a metal bowl. You will also need tools such as a shovel, trowel, and level. Make sure you have enough materials to create the size of fire ball pit you want.
Step 2: Prepare the Area
Clear away any debris from the area where you plan to build your fire ball pit. Use the shovel and trowel to dig out a shallow hole that is slightly larger than the metal bowl. Make sure the hole is level so that the bowl sits evenly in it.
Step 3: Place Bowl in Hole
Place the metal bowl in the center of the hole. Make sure it is level and secure it with bricks or stones if necessary. Fill in around the bowl with sand and gravel until it is completely covered.
Step 4: Build Walls
Use bricks or stones to build walls around the outside of the bowl. The walls should be at least 8 inches high and should form a circle around the bowl. Make sure they are even and level.
Step 5: Add Firewood
Once your fire ball pit is complete, add some firewood to it. Light it up and enjoy!
