DIY: Tire Flower Pot And A Little Bit Of Rock & Roll

Hello! I just happily finished a new project in my garden. My husband and I are a little irresponsable sometimes, we never got rid of some old tires that were in the trunk of the car for almost 2 years, I was getting sick of them but my mom convinced me to use them to make some kind of garden chair, after taking another look at them I realized they were way too small to be benches but they would make some awesome planters. To add a little spice, I bought some gold thumb tacks to decorate them a bit, they turned out great and even had kind of a rock & roll flare, kind of like a studded leather jacket.

Material:

  • Old Tire
  • Thumbs tacks
  • Hammer
  • Plants and soil

Steps
1. Put the thumb tacks in the tire in some kind of a design. The best way to do it is to press the tacks just a little with you thumb so they don’t move and then nail them the rest of the way with the hammer. You can do it with your finger, but it might start to hurt pretty quickly.
2. After you finish with all the tacks place the tire where you want it, when you add the soil and plants it’s going to be really difficult to move it.
3. Fill the tire with soil and plant your favorite flowers or plants.
4. Have some fun along the way, like my friend here that spent all morning talking to me.

Tip. Another option is to place potted plants inside the tire so you can move and reorganize them whenever you want.

  1. […] it was candy for my eyes, they looked so much fun for a little kid. I’m kind of sad I used all my old tires for other projects, but I just need to wait to pop another one so I can save it, clean it, cut it, paint it and make a […]

    This is awesome! I’ve never thought of using a tire as a planter. Just a quick question, does the soil directly touch the grass or did you put something below the tire as a base? Btw, I love your hanger, the wind chime and is that a bird feeder? This project is beautiful!

    • Hi Onel!
      Mine doesn’t have a bottom, I really don’t care if it stays there forever. If you want the planter to be movable you can add a base, it could just be a piece of plywood.
      Yep :) I added a bird feeder and a wind chime. You should see, those cute birds love my garden.
