How to Make a Rock Bowl Flame

    These DIY Flaming Rock Bowls Light Up Your Backyard or Patio Party If you want to give your backyard a little design flare for your next get-together, or you'd just like a fire feature for your patio to enjoy on a lazy afternoon, these fire bowls are built to shoot flame up through the rocks in the bowl from the center as soon as they're lit. These flaming rock bowls used to be available to purchase from Restoration Hardware, but now that they're no longer available, the folks at b3 Home Designs decided to make them on their own. Best part? Once you have everything required, they only take a half-hour to make. You'll need quick-set concrete, some river rocks, a chafing disk fuel pack (Sterno containers), a large plastic bowl, a can, and a few tools to put it all together, but it's remarkably quick and easy considering the ingredients needed to make this fire effect come to life. Once it's all finished, just put the bowl outside, light the Sterno, and sit back and enjoy the fire. it looks great and adds some real atmosphere to a chilly fall afternoon on the back porch. Would you give this a shot, or would you tackle this project differently?
