How to Make a Fire Pit With Leftover Bricks
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
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!
If you'd like even more warmth, try out these electric patio heaters.

Hi can you use river rocks 🪨 or similar t for the bottom of the fire pit???
Does the heat of the fire destroy the construction adhesive? Looks great!!
