Radio Flier Fire Pit…

5.1 006
I think this is one of the most unique recycling ideas EVER. As I approached a recent garage sale I could smell wood burning. When I turned to look for the fire…this is what I saw…a fire burning in a radio flier wagon. I asked the homeowners how they thought to use the wagon as a fire pit. Here is the response I got from the homeowner. “We wanted to buy a fire pit so we could enjoy some fires this summer and when I went to buy one they were $100. In this economy I couldn’t justify spending the $100…so I thought…What do we have around the house that could be used? We realized that we had this wagon that could not longer be used to haul the kids around…so why not turn it into a fire pit.

I'm torn between viewing this idea as green and economical, OR sacrilegious! It's a radio flyer, for goodness sake...a collectible of tomorrow! :)

I too wonder if it will burn through the wagon. I use my Radio Flyer to haul stuff around my yard.

Okay i'm with PJ... I can't decide which is which.. as a child this is certainly sacrilegious.. as a frugal adult.. way to go.

I'm on the proverbial fence on this one.
