Today we’re going to show you some incredible DIY fire pit ideas from simple round or square shaped pits to multi-level stone designs. Some of these DIY fire pits are made from the recycled materials with a bit of creativity, like the wine barrel, flower pot, car wheel, purchase cart and so on. Some are constructed from many different materials, like metal, stone, cinder blocks, etc, which is effort and time intensive and need some construction skills. You can do it yourself or ask a few friends for help. When selecting and building your fire pit, make sure you avoid using wet stones.
