How to Make a Fire Pit With Leftover Bricks

4 materials
1 Hour

Do you have leftover brick from another project? Learn how to make a fire pit with leftover bricks. For those of you that have been around for a while, you know that we have done so many projects with the 2 pallets of reclaimed brick that we got from a local greenhouse. And we still have some left! We have been slowly creating a little backyard retreat, and instead of a fire pit where the bottom always rusts out, I decided to make a permanent fire pit with the leftover brick.

How to Make a Fire Pit with Leftover Brick Before

Things You Will Need:

  • Leftover brick (42 bricks to make a 3-tiered 36″ fire ring)
  • Landscaping construction adhesive
  • Tape Measure
  • Gravel

Use 2 Bricks and Mark your Diameter. This fire pit is 36″.

Repeat step 1 with two more bricks

Fill in the gaps with brick to make a ring.

Place adhesive on the bottom of the next row of brick and stack.

Repeat step 4 with the 3rd layer of bricks.

Fill the center with pea gravel

We already had gravel down in this area, but if you are building this on a patio or the grass simply fill the inside of the pit with gravel. And voila!
