Recycled Tire Planter Boxes

I was walking in Williamsburgh last weekend and saw that some clever cat on Bedford Ave. had converted two old tires into some very snazzy planter boxes, and seeing this clever re-use made me happy, and want to share with you. I’d like a huge wall of these, bursting with plants and flowers.

So smart! Does anyone sell these?

Oooooo! Just found an instructional! Thanks wuvie.net!
First I get a yard, then I make the tire planters, then I get the power.

Love.

  • Back in redneck country where I was raised, we don’t bother with the cutting and turning inside out; we just paint the tire–or the mailbox, old bathtub, toilet, hot water heater, etc. I really wish I were kidding on that last one, but last time I was home my dad had an old hot water heater cut in half, resting on two saw horses and filled with flowers. http://www.enlightenedredneck.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/redneck_planter1.png

  • Ooh! Laurie Ann, I just viewed the gold redneck planter. Beautiful!! Is that one of your dad’s? I think he’s an artistic genius; for comparison, check out the “artwork” by Scoli Acosta called SUNFLOWER TIRE PLANTER (for sale, mind you) at artnet.com-first page. Puhleez!– completely bare, not even a squirt of the under $1 stuff. I have lots of pretty tire planters (yes, I am a country girl) but I NEED one of these gold beauties your dad designed. I’ll be searching out one of those extra-chubby tires presently. Anyway, thanks for the photo and the water-heater idea. By the way, is your artist-dad married?

  • My grandmother always advised me to use onion juice on my hair,
    but I thought it was a crazy idea. They use a multi-therapeutic approach,
    trying to win the war on hair loss by using every possible angle.
