Planters can cost anywhere from a couple of dollars to a couple of hundred dollars, especially larger planters. Because of these costs, using a repurposed tire as a planter can save you a lot of money. Free tires or tires at a reduced price are available at tire shops, your local junk yard, or on Craigslist. A quick online search should be able to show you where free tires are in your area. Once you have your materials the video shows you how to remove the top from the tire quickly and safely. After removing the tire’s top, the possibilities for use are endless! The video shows examples of various items made from tires, including garden ornaments and tiered planters. It also offers examples of other items made from tires like swings and decorations. This video will help you explore potential projects you can make with tires.
