My future father-in-law came up with this brilliant idea over 20 years ago to cut and flip an old tire inside out and use it as a gorgeous planter!

You can check out more pictures and see the full tutorial on my blog, Pink Hammers & Sippy Cups!

    I've seen a lot of this type of thing, but your's are the prettiest I've seen. There are so many things you could do with these smaller ones, like, hang it tipped up in a hanger and have trailing plants come out both sides, or on a fence, painted yellow

    I remember my dad making some for my mother back in the 60's so this has been around for a long time. Yours are so pretty in red, my favorite color.
