Autumn is putting on a sexy ass show right now, which has me hanging outdoors and soaking up every ounce of it.
It’s the vibrant leaves and the cooling temps for me.
Of course, a cozy outdoor autumn hang wouldn’t be complete without the warmth of a bonfire.
Fire in any form is pretty dang hygge and it always enhances the cozy mood unless, of course, it’s burning your house down.
There isn’t anything cozy about that.
Come, Autumn, day or night, our Solo Stove gets put to work and when it’s blazing, I feel my coziest.
From the warmth and crackle, to the smell it’s such a fall vibe, and I also happen to be a bit of a pro when it comes to building a fire.
Special thanks to my teacher and husband for showing me the ropes.
Ryan says the key to a good fire is kindling and good dry wood.
You can’t build a fire if the coals aren’t hot, and if the wood is wet, you are doubly screwed.
Prepare for a smoke fest.
Here’s how to build a bonfire.
To begin, gather your kindling. Whether that looks like yesterday’s news, the cardboard from the case of Miller Lite you crushed last weekend, some sticks and branches, or all of the above, anything goes!
I always have mini Duraflame mini logs on hand for the days when I don’t feel like foraging.
Once you get your coals cooking, it is time to place the logs.
What’s your style?
Are you a lincoln log or teepee kind of gal?
Personally, it depends on my mood.
If I am looking for a real rager, the lincoln log method allows for more logs which in turn makes for a much larger fire.
Either way, both designs get the job done.
I like my fires big and hot like my man, so there are always logs nearby for when the fire begins to fade.
There isn’t much to do after you get her going besides a enjoy a little R & R and some great conversation in the elements.
Whatever you choose, your hygge game is looking up!
If you want to up your bonfire game this season, or have someone in your life that is a bonfire lover treat them to some bonfire accessories this season!
