Old tires are usually discarded or, at the absolute least, wind up accumulating dust in the garage or yard. Instead of tossing them away or allowing them to accumulate and clutter your yard, why not repurpose them into something useful?
Whether you have one tire or a hundred, there is always something you can build with them that will not only recycle them but also provide excellent inside and exterior décor. You can make anything from furniture to flower pots to a toy for the kids out of those old, worthless tires.
Rubber's elasticity makes it highly durable and soft, and it's also quite simple to work with crafts and DIY projects. Request to keep your old tires the next time you have your tires replaced, and then check out the various options we have for you to recycle your old tires into something fresh and fascinating.
1. A Climber for Tires
If you have children or grandchildren, you know how expensive outdoor play equipment can be. Why not make those old tires into a wonderful tire climber and kill two birds with one stone instead of spending a few hundred dollars on a jungle gym? Simply paint the tires various colors and arrange them in whatever way you choose to make the climber. To make them safe, you'll need to bolt them together, but this takes very little time and is something you can do for free if you already have tires and paint on hand.
2. A Caddy for Hoses
You can create a hose caddy out of an old tire instead of keeping your garden hose out where it might be damaged (and let's face it, it simply looks untidy when you don't have your garden hose put away). All you have to do is cut the tire in half and coil the hose inside. Paint the tire after you cut it to match your garden shed, house façade, or outdoor décor if you truly want to make your outdoor space seem nice and tidy. You may then suspend the hose or just bury it on the ground, whichever you want.
3. An Ottoman with Ropes
How about making genuine inside furniture out of used tires? Yes, we believe so, and this rope ottoman is the ideal weekend project if you're looking for something fresh and different for your home. To make the top, you'll need a circular board of some type, and then all you have to do is wrap the rope around it. It creates a lovely rustic-looking ottoman that may be used inside or added to your outdoor décor. It's simple to make and just requires a few things.
4. A Swinging Horse
You may repurpose old, unusable tires into amazing swings that are nothing like the ones you used to have as a kid. A horse swing, which you can simply create from an old tire and a few other basic components, will delight your child. This project takes a lot less time than you would think, and it results in an acute horse swing that looks a lot like the ones you find in farm shops, but for a lot less money. All you have to do now is draw the design, cut out the tire, and add the mane and a hanging rope.
5. Stunning Planters
There are a few different techniques to make planters out of tires, and this one gives the tire a flowery appearance. There will be some trimming, and you may wish to paint the tire to make it seem more appealing. Depending on how many tires you have on hand, you might create many of them to thoroughly adorn your outside deck, porch, or garden area. They are simple to make, requiring only a tire and some paint. Keep all of your used tires to make a stunning landscape with your DIY tire planters.
6. A Fantastic Table
You can construct a fantastic table out of an old tire, some rope, and a few pieces of wood for the legs, which you can display inside or out. You'll need a piece or two of plywood cut into a circle shape to suit the top and bottom (this is where the legs will join), as well as some rope to hide it. If you wanted a more colorful appearance, you could paint the rope beforehand or simply use rope color to give it a nice rustic effect. You may also create the legs out of plywood, so you'll only need a few items and this will be a simple job.
7. A Seat in a Tube
You can make a lovely and really comfy tube seat out of an old inner tube (like the ones you used at the lake as a child). Simply fill the tube with air (and fix any holes if necessary), then cover it with ribbon or fabric. These are fantastic chairs for teens' rooms or for little ones to sit on in front of the TV. You can make these in whatever color combination you like, and if you make a few, you can make a lovely small sitting area for the kids.
8. A Tottering Tire
It's like a teeter-totter, but with a tire! You just need one tire, aboard, and a few decorating tools to construct this charming little teeter-totter for the kids. The tire is sliced in half, allowing you to build two if necessary. Paint the tire and the board the same color or use various colors to make it more appealing. The board will function as the sitting area, and you will need to attach the handles before decorating it as desired. Unlike the teeter-totters in the park, they are ideal for toddlers because they are near to the ground.
9. A Pond in the Garden
If you've always wanted a garden pond but the kits are out of your price range, recycle your old tires to make a stunning pond at a fraction of the price. Aside from the tire (or numerous tires if you want to make a graded pond), you'll need garden foil, gravel or pebbles, sand, and a few plants, which you may already have or may get from your local gardening shop. This is a really simple method to have a soothing garden pond without spending a lot of money, and it can be built on a weekend.
