We love how the rocks surround the flame and give this pit such a natural, outdoorsy feel. The base is made out of a metal planter, and the glass comes from simple picture frames, so the materials are easy to find. And, this only cost the crafter about $25, so it's an inexpensive way to lounge around and cozy up throughout the season.
