DIY S’MORES POT
First off, MAKE THIS SMORES POT right now. Or after a quick trip to Lowes (orAmazon from your couch), if you don’t happen to have a terra cotta pot and charcoal lying around. All I did was line a pot with tin foil and fill with charcoal and presto, we had our own little fire pit perfect for the back deck. The pot was less than a dollar so even if we never use it again – totally worth it.
DIY BEVERAGE LID
