ONE DAY LEFT: Win a Crock-Pot 6-Qt Express Pressure Cooker! →

When summertime rolls around, we cannot wait to head outside and sit around the fire pit. There are few activities that are more fun than grabbing some friends and having a bonfire. Hazy summer evenings fly right by when you’re having this kind of fun. After all, we all love to make s’mores. None of these possibilities seem feasible to most readers, though, because many of us do not have a fire pit at home.

For those that do not have the ability to throw their own bonfire, stories like this one may seem like a cruel taunt. Fortunately, we have the perfect hack to assist those who are looking to make a change.

To get started, you’ll need two plastic bowls (one will need to be a little larger than the other), instant cement, solid gel, coal, sandpaper, a sander, and a grout sponge.
