Quick Project: Build a Fire Pit in under an hour

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to heat up the patio at night, check out this fire pit that you can easily make in under an hour.


Who doesn't want a fire pit in their garden, especially if you have an entertainment area or place where you like to gather with guests and family. While a conventional fire pit can take a few weeks to complete, this idea lets you start your fire pit when you buy it and then add the surrounding at your leisure.



The secret?....





These steel fire pits are perfect for starting your fire pit project, and let you build up the fire pit surround as and when you have the funds to finish off your fire pit.

Follow our easy instructions to make a concrete fire pit that is similar to the one shown above and below, or make a simple brick and mortar fireplace surround.  Both are quick and easy do-it-yourself projects that don't require any special skills or special tools and you can easily complete either project in a week.
