The winter holidays have now come and gone, but the winter season is still in motion, and if you’re trying to find ways to enhance your winter experience, a fire pit could be just what your property needs.
When deciding on a fire pit style, a popular selection is the DIY approach. If you’re up to the challenge, check out our DIY fire pit ideas that anyone can easily implement this winter.
Build a Fire Pit for Your Backyard
The size of your outdoor space will influence the size of your pit. For a modern backyard, your pit doesn’t have to be too large. It should be a simple design, easy to build, and offer sufficient seating. Get creative with your materials. Create your foundation of the fire pit with concrete, stone or gravel. Add a unique twist to your pit by deviating from the standard circular style. As an alternative, use a square shape for your fire pit to add a more standard element in your outdoor landscape. For those seeking an easier option, try the EP Henry fire pit kit, which is sold at Lehnhoff’s Supply along with the other materials for a DIY pit.
Go With a Classic DIY Fire Pit Design
Classic fire pits are made using cinder blocks, concrete pavers, or bricks. Our favorite thing about classic fire pits is that they take merely a few hours to put together, so it shouldn’t consume your weekend to construct. You’ll have more time to enjoy the finished product! Additionally, even if on a tight budget, you can build a fire pit without paying too much money.

Provide Ample Fire Pit Seating
A perfect pit is useless without the right seating choices. Make it a point to include enough seating for your guests. Wood, rod iron, teak, or outdoor wicker lounge chairs and love seats; classic Adirondack chairs; and circular benches are more popular seating choices. However, concrete stools or even tree stumps offer natural textured seating options. A fire pit is intended to bring people together so make sure you have enough spots for them to park themselves and enjoy the outdoor oasis.
Small, Portable Fire Pits are Another Option
Not all fire pits are required to be large in scale. Instead, you could make a smaller pit. They are easier to transport and allow you to set it up in any outdoor space – back yard, front yard, deck, or porch. Adding a smaller, portable pit enables you to have a multi-season space while adding to ambiance, comfort, and warmth. Smaller fire pits also promote cuddling and provide entertainment options.
