DIY Inspiration: Recycled Tire Swings
So i’m back in town! My vacation was awesome, I enjoyed every second I had with my family and friends and we had a great party for my dad’s 50th birthday. From the moment I got to Mexico I didn’t stop moving. It had been a year since I had gone back so I had a big list of things to do, between dinners with friends, organizing my dad’s party and a photo shoot that a good friend helped me with for my jewelry (that I will share with you soon) the days flew by, it happened so fast. Although I was busy I had a lot of fun, I hanged around the town I used to live when I was a kid, I saw a lot of old friends and went to places I used to visit just to remember old times.
One day we went to eat at La casa del Abuelo, a local restaurant, I was craving panuchos that btw were delicious, that is where I found these awesome swings made out of old tires. I loved the idea so much I took some pictures for do it yourself inspiration. Then the next day I drove by the local market and saw a guy selling them on the street, I was tempted to buy one just because they looked so cute. The guy put a cord through a tree and hung a couple of swings, they were all colorful, painted in different color combinations, 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 cute recycled swing. The cool part is that they are pretty safe, well, they are a chair made out of tire’s. So they should be pretty strong.
I don’t have the steps but you can see the way they cut the tire to made the shape, the tire is one piece just cut and flipped inside out.
Maybe a big truck tire will work for adults haha, omg I want to swing in one of those so badly!
Hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy this project inspiration and if you try it send us the pictures. xoxo Elba.
