DIY Flameless Fire Pit

Creating fire pit inside the house for decorating purposes can be intimidating.Today I am sharing a simple idea to create a faux fire pit that anyone can make under few seconds with very few supplies.Let's see how.

How to create fake fire inside the house

Materials Used :
A Container (I got mine at thrift stores for a $1 )
LED Candles(I got at Michaels)
Glass Gems (I got at dollar tree)
Black Chalky Paint (Optional)
Foam Brush (Optional )
Double sided foam stickers (Optional)

Step 1:  Paint the inside of the container black and allow it to dry. I used chalky finish black paint to give authentic fire pit look but it is totally up to you to decided whether or not to paint the inside of the container.

Step 2: Pour some gems into the container.

Step 3: Stick the double-sided foam sticker onto the base of the candles and stick them to the inside of the container as shown.Again you can just wiggle the candles into the gems to position instead of using double sided stickers.

Step 4: Pour the remaining gems on the top and your flameless fire pit is ready. How easy was that ?? You can add some Halloweeny items like spiders, skulls or even a skeleton hand peeking out of the fire pit to add extra pizzaz to the fire pit. 

Hope you like this simple idea.Share with me in the comments below on how you would use this idea  in your Halloween decor.As always I will be happy to hear from you. If you have an extra 30 seconds ,see the video below to have a look at the fire pit in action.This is my first ever youtube and I will be happy if you watch it and share your suggestions.Thank you :)
