Do it yourself: Mini-campfire perfect for indoors

Summertime is here, and if you are anything like me, you are itching to cozy up around a campfire to make ooey, gooey s’mores.
Many of us are lucky enough to have a great sized yard for a fire pit or friends who do. But for those who do not, this DIY is just for you.
This tabletop fire pit is perfect for apartments, small yards or even for when you are in the mood to bring the outdoors inside.
All you will need is a shallow planter, river rocks and a small can of chafing fuel.
STEP ONE: Fill your planter about halfway with the rocks.
STEP TWO: Place the chafing fuel container in the center of the planter on as level of a spot as you can.
STEP THREE: Pour rocks around the chafing fuel to fill the planter in the rest of the way. Sinking the chafing fuel into the rocks will keep your flame source stable.
Once it is set up just remove the lid, light the chafing fuel and enjoy!
