How to transform an old tire into a lovely planter


If you’re driving a car, then you know how fast the road and journeys will wear out your tires. Most people throw away their old tires, but not Pamela from

A couple of years ago she posted a lovely tutorial on her website on how to make a fresh planter out of an old tire. My husband changed his vehicle’s tires earlier this January and instead of throwing them away, I managed to convince him to keep them so that I could finally use Pamela’s tutorial. Over the course of one weekend I managed to put together two wonderful planters for our entryway. I’m planning to use the remaining two tires for another set of planters, only this time I’ll transform them into hanging ones.

If you’re into gardening, plants, upcycling and DIY projects, this one is definitely for you!
