End your evening on the patio in the soft glow of candlelight. This fire feature is inexpensive, incredibly easy, and highly customizable.


  • Flat, wide vessel (we used a planting bowl)
  • Rock (we used lava rock)
  • Candles in jars or Sterno cans


  • Fill vessel with rock, stopping a couple inches from the top.
  • Place your candles in desired formation, digging them into the rock a bit so they are even with the lip.
  • Fill in rock around the candles, so they are nearly even with the tops of the jars.

Tip: Use citronella candles to keep the mosquitoes at bay!
