How To Make Your Own Small Fire Pit

5 Minutes
I have been craving s'mores ALL summer long! I decided it was time to do something about my craving. The last thing I wanted to do was buy a fire pit. So I decided to make one on my own!
I used a small ceramic flower pot, river rocks and a chafing fuel container.
Place the river rocks into the flower pot. And spread out to create an even surface.
Place chafing fuel container on top of a smooth river rock surface. Allow the container to stick out a little higher than the flower pot.
Remove the chafing fuel lid and light. (Keep in mind this gets very hot!) Then you have your very own small fire pit. Perfect for making s'mores!
