Today is the last day of my Curbly guest posting spree. I'm so happy I got to share my Curiosity Bone Vase, Printable Watercolor Art and DIY Coasters with you all. For my last post, I'm really excited to share this DIY S'mores atio "grill." S'mores are one of my favorite parts of summer - but city ordinances in my hometown don't allow patio fireplaces.
So, I came up with this lovely centerpiece. Not only will it cook a marshmallow for s'mores perfectly, it also looks absolutely beautiful during the day and when the flame isn't being used. I sourced twigs from my own back yard so the whole thing has a really special vibe that I really adore. The concept is really versatile and I'm sure you can find a space on your patio for a s'mores centerpiece!
- Two nestable glass bowls. I chose two square bowls that nest really nicely
- Sticks, twigs, or any other filler that reminds you of a fire
- Outdoor candles
- Alcohol fuel candle
- Battery operated incandescent string lights (about 3 ft long)
Break up your collected sticks and arrange them between the nesting bowls. If you are using the battery powered lights, weave them into the sticks and place the battery box at the center where you can access it easily later.
With the lights on, the centerpiece is reminiscent of a real campfire. I use the candles most of the time, but when I want to make a s'more I add the alcohol candle and roast as many marshmallows as I want.
It has been really great sharing with you all lately. I hope that you found something you like!
