Fire bowls are great decorations for your out door tables as you begin to throw garden parties with the approach of summer. They are so cheap, so easy, and so much more exciting than candles. This is a great alternative to candles, or even a fire place, depending on the width and depth of your bowl!
What You'll Need
Flame Resistant Bowl (Ceramic bowls work well)
1 liter of Fire Gel Fuel
Set up your bowl in an area where there is no danger of fire damage. Clear up anything flammable ahead of time.
Fill the bowl with river rocks- but make sure they are only the kind you get at your local store. River rocks straight out of the river bed tend to have pockets of air and moisture, that will make the rocks crack when heated.
Pour the liter of fire gel over the rocks evenly. About a liter of the gel will burn for a good four hours, so the more liberally you apply it, the longer it will burn.
Light your fire, by tossing a match onto the rocks. This prevents the chance of burns.
If for any reason you want to put your fire bowls out, then just be sure to cover the bowl entirely with another bowl or plate.
