Though it’s hard to top the relaxation of a crackling fire or the thrill of roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over an open flame, having crafty roasting sticks in hand will add another layer of fun to your next outdoor adventure. Check out Martha Stewart’s tutorial for creating these fun rustic sticks!
Rustic roasting sticks serve double duty as a primitive centerpiece. Display in a tall tin can, metal bucket, or antique milk pail with a little water, and they’ll be soaked and ready to use by the time the fire’s started.
With a few outdoorsy touches, it’s easy to transform even the most urban patio chimnea into a cozy, deep-forest campfire. Enjoy sharing rustic retreats and sweet marshmallow treats with family and friends.
