DIY: Make Your Own Outdoor Concrete Firebowl

Photo credit: Home b3hd Designs

It's been awhile since I've shared a DIY post so I figured it was a great time to show you how to make your own outdoor firebowl. I'm going to make about 10 of these to line my patio for entertaining.

This idea comes straight from Home b3hd Designs. Check out their 31 days of DIY for Busy Gals for more great ideas.

You'll need:

Sakrete Quickset Concrete
a bunch of rocks (perhaps dug up from your yard)
a plastic bowl
a large canned good
chafing dish gel fuel pack
PAM cooking spray
plastic tub for mixing concrete
stick to stir concrete

What you'll need to do:

1. Measure out your concrete. I just filled my plastic bowl/mold with dry mix.

2. Dump mix in plastic mixing bin.

3. Add water; stir with stick.
Start with a puddle in the middle of dry mix. Not too soupy, not too chunky

3b. Spray PAM all over your mold and canned good.

4. Pour concrete into mold.

4b. I poured halfway, then placed my large canned good in the center and continued filling around the can.

4c. After about 6 minutes, I rotated my can, wiggled side to side and popped it out.

5. At the 17 minute mark, Cover top of mold with stack of newspaper.
Flip it over carefully; concrete form will slip right out.

6. and 7. Carefully and pleasingly place loose rocks along rim of concrete form.

8. and 9. Drop fire gel pack in center hole; light with long match and enjoy.
