I love fall—the changing leaves, the cool evenings, the cozy sweaters I can start wearing again.

Today we’re sharing some beautiful and creative fire pit designs, plus several of our favorite DIY fire pit tutorials.

Fire Pit Tips

Stringing bistro lights above and around your fire pit adds a nice ambience. You can use large garden urns filled with cement to hold the light posts in place. (I’d add a layer of potting soil over the cement in the pots and tuck in some flowers or greenery.)
