700 Views
Now that summer is well on its way, what a better way to spend your evening, or afternoon....or heck, even morning (for those big time Smores lovers!) Than roasting marshmallows and making Smores?!

**the materials and cost are for 2 boxes. I was making one for my place and 1 as a gift :)
Time: 2 HoursCost: $70Difficulty: Easy

Step 1- gather your materials. For mine I used plywood/pressbord for the bottom and I can't remember what the longer boards are.
I had the guy at home depot cut them for me as I don't have any power tools ;)
I also got 3/4 inch finishing nails (without the heads) 2 little cans of stain, a sanding block, hammer and a couple paint sponges (although brushes would have been better) and I originally got 8 bags of river rocks and 4 bags of gemstones but had to go get 8 more bags of river rock and 2 more gem stones. So 16 bags of river rock and 6 gemstone bags (if you're only making one you only need 1 can of stain and 8 and 4 bags of stones though. I made 2 boxes)
Also need burners. I'm not really sure what they're called

Step 2- sand down the ends/edges of all the wood

Step 3- pop the top off your stain and start painting. For 2 boxes I used 1 full can and a little out of the second can

Because it was so nice out we ended up moving outside to finish the painting

Step 4- nail the sides/ends to the bottom. The nails I got weren't long enough to nail the sides to the ends so I only nailed through the bottom into the sides and ends. You can get longer nails to secure the ends/sides together

Here's what they should look like after they are painted and nailed together (I left a little lip on the end so the stick used to roast marshmallows can lay on it

Next you'll need to get your stones and burners
  • smores bar
I put 3 burners in each before adding the rocks to see where I wanted them to sit. Take them out to add river rock and gem stones

Once you've added the river rock and gem stones put the burners back in

Here they are ready to roast some mallows!! :)

          Thanks Wendy! :)

          On those nights you have a sweet tooth and want something gooey but don't feel like lighting a bon fire this makes it SO much easier!

          And for younger children aswell it makes it easier for them to roast their own marshmallows without getting too close to a fire! (Still need adult supervision though when using this :) obviously lol)
