DIY Tire Flower Planter TutorialMy summer home tour revealed a sneak peek of a super easy DIY outdoor decorating/planter. DIY tire planter... See it? There on the wall? Isn't it happy? Materials:
- Old tire
- Valspar spray paint (color is Exotic Sea)
- potting soil
- I already had some leftover fabric weed barrier from the pallet herb garden and some packing peanuts on hand.
- Optional: chain and s-hook.
and these for the hanging tire swing flower planter:The drainage holes work! Specifically one of the six really works... When we're entertaining, I move the wall mounted tire flower planter to the interior wall of our covered patio. It's simply hanging on a big humungous sturdy nail. When the party ends, the tire planter is moved to an exterior wall for sunshine and rain/watering. It's awkward but not too heavy or difficult for moving around to maintain. I loved it so much, I needed one to hang in our magnolia tree: Doesn't it look beautiful hanging with my DIY chandelier flower planter in the background? To hang from a tree: Use chain (double hanging length, add about 10" for in the tire and more for the size of your tree limb). Wrap chain around tree branch and secure end pieces inside of the tire with an "s" hook.
