This is an easy indoor/outdoor fire bowl you can make. It safely puts off heat, adds ambiance, is great for survival emergencies like power outages, and is inexpensive to make.
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $2 Difficulty: Easy
You will need the following: A cookie tin (or other container of your choice) A empty can washed out Rocks or sand Wall Sticker, ribbon, or paint Hand Sanitizer Lighter
Use the wall sticker (mine came from Dollar Tree) to decorate the outside of the cookie tin. You could also glue on ribbon, or simply paint it.
Place an empty washed out can in the center of the cookie tin.
Add rocks around the tin can. You could use sand, or another decorative item of your choice.
Put the hand sanitizer in the tin can.
To protect your surface - I would suggest placing on a trivet, pot holder, etc.
Light the hand sanitizer. The alcohol content in the hand sanitizer is what will burn and alcohol is a clean burning fuel.
If using inside, be sure to crack a window for oxygen flow. Never leave a lit flame unattended.
This is great to have around in case of emergencies. If your power goes out you can use it to cook with.
You can roast marshmallows over it and make s'mores. To put the fire out - simply save the can lid to snuff it, or you can lay a damp washcloth or towel over it.
