DIY Fire Pit

We have already established that autumn is my favorite season, right?

The cool temps, the colors of the leaves, apples, football, stews, sweaters, and pumpkin pie make me happy, happy, happy.

Autumn is also a great time of year for bonfires and cowboy cooking.

One of the best things that we ever did was build a fire pit in our backyard. And purchase a campfire cooking tripod. {affiliate link}And Lodge Dutch Oven with the lid. {affiliate link}  See my Lodge Cast Iron haul here.

Best. Thing. EVAH!

We have enjoyed random weeknight hotdog roasting over the fire pit for supper. We've also had birthday parties around it, as well as weekend visits with friends.

There has been guitar playing and singing, storytelling, bible study, and thought provoking discussions.

Like I thang. F'real.

So, how did we make it?

First, we had to decide on location. We wanted it close to the house, but not too close, so we settled on a spot about 30 feet from our back door.

Then, my dear husband measured off the size that we wanted, and removed the grass using a shovel.

We went to Lowes and purchased:

2 bags of Sand

2 bags of Pea Gravel

36 Retaining Wall Stones

 In the end, our fire pit ended up measuring 3 ft- 8 inches in diameter and 12 inches high. 

Here is the video showing how my hubby put it together: 

I hope this was helpful and that you get the chance to build your own fire pit.
