DIY Concrete Fire Bowl

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

So it has started to get a little chilly out there, and naturally we have started looking at our heating options. We already have the diy washing drum fire pit and the diy fire pit from pavers, that do a great job at keeping the family warm. However, you know I am always looking at trying new things such as this diy concrete fire bowl.

Although this is a pretty simple project, I am interested to see how much heat this bowl can actually provide when compared to our other fire pits. The required materials should be easily available at any local hardware store. We have some left over concrete mix and wire mesh, so that cuts down on the total cost. Yay.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

No matter how smart you think you are, you probably wont be able to accurately guesstimate how much concrete you’ll need for this project, so just mix on demand. When you push your second smaller bowl into the mix, the concrete should be enough to cover up to the edges. A little motor oil smeared on the outer side of the smaller bowl, will help make it easier to remove once the concrete sets in about 48 hours.

Weights or large rocks placed in the inner bowl, will hold it down in place. A palm sander will passed around the outer bowl, aides in releasing the air bubbles in the concrete. Sand away any rough edges around the concrete bowl. Assembly is as easy as sitting your gel fuel in the center of the bowl, followed by the wire mesh that will hold your marbles in place. Your fire bowl is ready to be lit up! 🙂
