One idea for using tire planters is to create a short, stacked garden display. Instead of a single planter, the display requires six or more tires stacked in a pyramid-style setup, containing two to three layers. The planters can all be painted different colors or alternate between two or three colors in a repeating scheme. For a well-balanced display, each tire should contain bright flowers in colors that coordinate with the planters.Continue Reading
Arranging tires in an animal shape creates attractive garden art. For example, a frog planter involves laying two tires with a third tire stacked above them directly in the center, forming the lower and upper body. Two small tires are positioned upright on the top layer to form the frog eyes, while pieces of garden hose become the front legs. Cutouts from rubber doormats are useful for creating the frog feet. All of the tires should be painted green, and the face and eyes can be decorated with paint and other household materials.
An easy idea for a simple country planter is to apply rope, such as sisal, around the entire shape of the tire. The popular blooming planter involves turning a tire inside out. One side of the tire must be removed by cutting along the bead using a wavy pattern that resembles the shape of flower petals.Learn more about Outdoor Plants & Flowers
