  • old tyres, paint, rope, mud and flowering plants


There are a couple of ways that you can create planters from tires and this one gives the tire a flowered look. There is some cutting involved and you may want to paint the tire to give it a great color. You could make several of these depending on how many tires you have on hand and completely decorate your outdoor deck, porch or garden area. They are relatively easy to make and only require a tire and some paint. You could also do different sizes with different sizes of tires so keep all of those old tires to create a beautiful garden with your DIY tire planters.
