Hanging Tire Flower Planters

2-DSCF1451Hanging Tire Flower Planters

Just had to share my husband’s latest trash to treasure project.

I can’t say that old tires are items that get my mind to clicking when considering new trash to treasure projects, but I kinda dig this idea.

I had a tractor tire for a sandbox when I was little and there was always a stack of old tires in the barn. I mirrored that statement into adulthood. When my husband and I moved to town, there was no need for the tractor tire anymore, but somehow the old tires followed us.

3-DSCF1450About a month ago my sister-in-law shared a photo she had found on Facebook that was the inspiration for this project. There was no tutorial or link to follow, but it seemed pretty easy to figure out.

  1. What great planters! Recycling at it finest! I might do this…someone just dumped 4 tires on our property. I’ve been fuming about it but maybe I should be glad. When life hands you lemons (or tires), make lemonade (or planters).

  4. Outstanding idea, looks great also. Love free part. Out of way and nice looking, what a concept huh? Wish we had some tires but we don’t have fencing like that, only wire fencing we put in to keep our dog in before we got him. Glad you shared this idea. Happy summer days
