DIY Concrete Fire Pit Tutorial

Having a fire pit in your backyard adds a lot of fun. But do you know that you can build your own DIY fire pit easily? Don’t worry if you don’t know. I have found a great DIY tutorial from Manmade DIY here to teach how to build DIY concrete fire pit from scratch. What you will need for this concrete fire pit project are

  • Concrete mix
  • One extra-large bowl for exterior mold (ours was 17″ diameter)
  • One large bowl for interior mold (ours was 15″ diameter)
  • Non-stick cooking spray, or vegetable oil and paint brush
  • Large bucket for mixing
  • Medium-duty masonry trowel
  • Proper safety gear for working with concrete:
    • 3M Tekk Protection N95-rated dust mask for sanding and grinding
    • Safety glasses or goggles
    • Refinishing or work gloves
    • Plastic or reusable drop cloth
  • Heavy objects such as exercise weights (or you can use the rocks below)
  • Sandpaper or sanding pad in coarse and fine grits
  • Gel fireplace fuel canisters
  • Replacement grill grate (ours was 14 1/2″ diameter)
  • Fire safe decorative stones

See how gorgeous this fire pit is.
