With spring just days away, I am itching to strip off my winter layers and go romping in the great outdoors!

This winter was brutal — so brutal, in fact, many of us had to get very creative to deal with it — and I can’t wait to finally thaw out!

One of my favorite springtime activities is camping. The weather is cool and mild, the bugs aren’t yet swarming, and the sun is a welcome friend to winter-pale skin.

But when I can’t make it out to a campsite, the next best thing is a backyard fire pit. Roast some marshmallows, watch the fireflies dance, look at the stars — it’s the perfect way to spend a spring night.

And, thanks to the amazing tutorial below, making a fire pit just got much easier — and very, verycheap! With just an old grill and some concrete tree rings, your backyard can be completely transformed in a matter of one afternoon!

After looking through these great step-by-step photos, be sure to watch the awesome video below. It’s sure to bring your family a lot of fun this spring and summer!
