If you’re an urbanite or you just want to watch a flickering flame without the hassle of burning logs, ashes and soot, then this tabletop fire pit bowl project is for you.Once you have all the materials gathered, this cool tabletop fire pit bowl takes just a few minutes to make.

But, it’s important that you use the correct materials to construct your fire bowl; if you don’t, it could create a safety issue. As you gather the materials listed below, be sure to purchase fire glass and not decorative glass.


Fire glass is made to withstand very high temperatures. It also will not emit harmful gases, discolor or crack when it’s heated. Also be sure to use only fire gel fuel and not the Sterno fuel cups used to keep food warm in a chafing dish.
