DIY Repurposed Old Tires

Top 5 DIY tires

The other day Margaret told me an endearing story that I must share with you.

Her father had an old tire hiding in the garage and was tired of looking at it.  He asked her…” how do I get rid of it?”  Margaret in a moment of creative inspiration suggested he turn it into a planter for the backyard.  This is what he did!

With an old tire, spray paint, flag, garden soil, and plants this was an easy-to-do project that brought many accolades from family and friends.
