This summer has been anything but ordinary due to COVID-19. While adapting to our new normal and spending more time at home to stop the spread of a global pandemic, the summer months seem to have vanished right before our eyes! Where has time gone? In a few short weeks we will be gearing up for the fall season, whatever that may look like this year (2020 seems to be full of unwelcome surprises!). Fall is always a special time of year. A change of scenery, a breath of cool crisp air, something just wakes us up from our summer haze. One thing that our family has always looked forward to is pulling out the firepit and chairs to prepare for our cozy evenings with family gathered around the fire.
While there are some incredible fire pit options online and in stores for purchase, there is just something exciting about a DIY project. They may not always turn out as we had planned, but the unexpected process and outcome seems to be just what the doctor ordered in a time when the days seem to be repeating themselves.
compiled a great list of DIY fire pits
with step by step tutorials to spark inspiration. From pits with half walls, to ones you can cook on and more elaborate versions that look like mini fireplaces, the options are endless!
Grab a coffee, tea or a glass of wine (“it’s 5 O’ Clock Somewhere” right?) and let the creative juices flow! Before you know it, the time will come where the weather will be just right for s’mores and fireside gatherings. Do you have a DIY fire pit that you absolutely love? Show us your set up in the comments!
Ahhh… we can almost smell the pumpkin spice from here!
