New Craze: Old Planters, as Miriam I has posted earlier/before. (DECADES OLD INVENTION!!! Not a new idea)
1 - Take a very worn out tire (best with no wires sticking out).
2 - Wash it with a degreaser, and a brush to get rid of possible oils on it.
3 - You are now ready to draw the shape of the top ending/petal you will want your tire planter to have, but before you do this, with your thumb (finger) press down to feel that where you will be drawing/cutting there is NO WIRES. If you are able to press down, that means NO WIRES there.
4 - Cut out the drawing you made with a very hard, and sharp knife. You will have another decoration piece after doing this. For example as in picture #4.
5 - Turn the tire inside out. This is somewhat difficult, but doable. ...»
