Sometimes you don’t want to build a whole “fire pit” adventure in your backyard, but you still want that fire factor. No problem, we found some easy DIY tabletop fire bowls (sometimes called tabletop fire pits) for you that fit perfectly in any garden space! Whether you don’t want to smoke out the neighbors, or you just don’t have the space, fire bowls can be used on the patio any time of year. Fire is an element of nature that is a natural in a garden space, and allows you to enjoy the outdoors long after the sun goes down. Think “campfire” without the firewood hunting!

Mike from ‘Modern Builds‘ shows us how to make his modern concrete fire bowl in video! This is a great tutorial for those of us who really need to be walked through a project visually, and honestly I think most of us fall into that category!
Also from Mike at ‘Modern Builds‘ is this DIY concrete tabletop Tiki torch. Also in video, this tutorial was a little different, and we love different!
Karen at ‘The Art of Doing Stuff‘ made this awesome mini DIY fire pit for cheap. She made this for under $25, and we’ve seen similar ones for over $150…
‘BHG” made this really simple backyard fire pit with a galvanized metal bowl, fire glass and gel fuel. Be sure if you use a metal container you remember it can get hot really fast.
