Top Four Reasons Why Mini Fire Pits are So Popular Now

Mini fire pits are budget-friendly and cost less than traditional fire pits.

Great Decoration and Add Ambiance

Creating a cozy and warm atmosphere is super easy and convenient with mini fire pits. They make for a lively decor item in your home, and setting fire can help release negative emotions.

Versatile and Portable

Mini fire pits are easy to carry anywhere, be it indoor or outdoor. They're perfect for camping, doing S'mores with friends and families, and more.

Super Easy to DIY

With accessible materials and some tools, mini fire pits are easy to make. Plus, it's a fun project that allows you to customize the design and materials to your liking. Acimone silicone molds are designed to simplify production and add personalized elements to your mini fire pit.

Why ACIMONE Silicone Molds are a Good Choice

Made from high-quality silicone, Acimone molds allow you to make multiple mini fire pits at a fraction of the cost. Each mold costs only 3.5 pounds (less than $5) plus some water and cement. The molds are easy to use and require minimal preparation, and cleaning them is a breeze – just use soap and water.

Patented Design make it as one-kind products.

Necessary Materials & Tools:

  • ACIMONE Mini Fire Pit Mold (Rock-Bed Round)
  • Rocks less than 4/5 in (20mm)
  • CEMENT ALL Brand cement (3.5 pounds for each pit)
  • Water (25 Oz for each pit)
  • Bucket
  • Handicraft Shovel

Step 1: Prepare the Bracket and Apply Oil

To ensure easy demolding of the fire pits, apply vegetable oil or machine lubricant oil to the base bracket and silicone mold where they will come into contact. This prevents the concrete from sticking to the mold. Next, assemble the plastic bracket to ensure the concrete takes on the desired shape as it solidifies.

Step 2: Mix the Cement & Water

For best results, use CEMENT ALL brand cement or any other brand you prefer. Mix 3.5 pounds of cement with a specific ratio of water (ratio to be specified) to achieve the desired consistency. To account for leftover cement in the bucket and cover, it's best to make extra. For custom colors and textures, use white cement.

Step 3: Pour the filler into the Molds

Carefully pour the pre-mixed cement into the mold, ensuring it's filled to the top. Gently shake the mold to remove any trapped air, for better results.

Step 4: Let it Set

Allow the mold to sit undisturbed while the cement solidifies. In summer, wait at least 24 hours, and in winter, wait for 48 hours.

Step 5: Demolding

Remove the bolts and separate the arc plastic bracket. Use a sticker to create some space between the silicone mold and base bracket, allowing air to enter and facilitating easy removal. Unwrap the silicone mold and remove it from the fire pit.

Step 6: Decorate and Enjoy!

Add decorative rocks to the gaps in the fire pit, apply stickers or decals, or even engrave someone's name on it. Pour rubbing alcohol into the stainless steel, light a match, and enjoy your new DIY table top fire pit. Remember to wash the molds with soap to reuse them.

  1. Why doesn’t the video show lubricant being spread INSIDE of the silicone mold? Aren’t you supposed to lubricate so the cement doesn’t stick to the silicon mold?
