I teamed up with my local Discount Tire to figure out a creative way to make good use of old tires. I love that I have a location close to me. We’ve been loyal customers for as long as I can remember, so I was pretty excited to work with them. I stopped by the shop to pick out an old tire and found one that felt like it would be perfect for my project! I also apparently just missed seeing one of my friends who also popped in to grab some tires for an upcycling project she was working on too! So you can already tell it’s easy to stop in and get your own tire for this project.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this planter:1 old tire
1 – 4×4 board cut to 3 – 12″ long pieces with 15 degree angles at each end. The long side and short side of the angles should measure 12″.
approx 200′ of 3/8″ sisal rope (or less if you have a bigger diameter)
2″ pocket hole screws
Kreg Jig or angle brackets
2″ bolts and nuts
3/4″ plywood or end of wood spool
jigsaw with scroll blade
Have you ever created any projects from recycled tires? I’d love it if you shared them! It’s always fun to see what others can come up with. If you’re looking to build this project or others with tires, definitely head to your local Discount Tire. They’d be happy to help you turn old tires into new creations!
