      Carla Seif your local tire shop can flip it for free before/after you cut it, I still like the way these came out, nice job.

    I was thinking I need to find some old tires that used tubes instead of steel belts, would be much easier to turn inside out! Have an old tractor graveyard not to far from me, think i'll go hunting there :)

    It was my 1st attempt, as you can see the cuts are pretty awkward. Oh well try try again! Hubby tried to turn it inside out, after much huffing, puffing , and a few choice words he stomped off red in the face telling me to toss it. It was quite comical!

    My Mother used these planters years ago. Make sure you put them in place before filling them with soil, very heavy to move.

    I drew the shape I wanted (scallops). I have tried 4-5 different knives to cut it. What did others use to cut their tires? Thank you for the idea of taking tire to a tire shop..thats where I got mine.. 1 block away.. I'm not even going to attempt to turn it!

    Hmmmm. I would like to try this, but instead of planting in the tire, I would paint it a bright yellow (and whatever else I could think of), and hang it on the fence! Here comes the sun.

    Add soil and plants to it after you hang it on the fence.
