In the season of cold weather, fire pits are great for warming the area and creating a nice environment for yourself, your family, and guests. You can use functional fine art in your backyard to create a unique environment and make your home a work of art. There are some tricks you can use to make it an even more incredible fire pit experience for everyone.
Keep insects away. If you don’t want guests to be bothered by pesky mosquitos and other insects, use sage. All you have to do is throw a few sticks into the fire and the scent will make the mosquitos run for cover.
Roast marshmallows. Many times, sticks made of wood can burn and be too short to safely roast marshmallows. Use a roasting fork to get your treats toasted without getting too close to the heat. This makes s’mores and other foods easy to create at a moment’s notice.
Get a fire starter. You can purchase them from the store, but they can also be easily created using items like cotton balls or candle wax. Other items around the home can be used to make an effective fire starter as well.
Add a glow to the area. For a more colorful experience, you can bring the fire to life by using colorful glass to make everything look amazing. Lava rock can be added to the embers of the fire and then a mesh screen should be put on top of it. Top these with fire glass in colors of your choice and watch as the flame flickers and shines beautifully.
You can make your backyard get-together the time of your life by focusing attention on the fire pit. You can do cool tricks and entertain your guests with the fun fire tricks above. You can even change the color of the fire, giving everything a warm glow.
