Anyone who’s been following my blog for a while is familiar with my Portable Outdoor Fire Pit.
This winter I took the premise of that fire pit and altered it to make it bigger, badder and more impressive. And you can do it too. Unless you’re frightened of going bigger, badder and more impressive. Because you’re a sissy.
I am NOT a sissy. I’m a badass as you can see by my big, badass winter fire pit.
Yes. Those are real flames, provided by Real Flame gel fuel. No the glass does not explode. The flames don’t get close enough to the glass instantly to make that happen. For the glass to break you’d have to put a hot, hot flame directly onto a cold, cold piece of glass. Of course, I’m sure if the conditions were right the glass could break. That’s where the badass part comes in.
To do this, (which would look great all winter or summer long by your back or front door) just follow the instructions in my Outdoor Fire Pit tutorial, but use larger glass and buy larger planters. This one is actually easier, because you can make any sized glass box and just set it into the dirt in the planter. If the size is a bit off, (as long as it’s smaller than the opening of the planter) you’ll be fine. Good luck to all you badassians.
For you sissies … more outdoor planter options and decorating to come … Later today. Yes. It’s true. Two posts in one day. You’ll understand the ridiculousness of that when you read the next post.
