Unique Garden Box

Hey Hometalkers! I'm not sure about you, but since we've been on lockdown, I've managed to get really creative just by using things we have lying around the house! It has been so fun crafting and recyclying at the same time. For this project, I had this old Harley Davidson tire from my dad so I thought with Spring here, why not make a fence planter.

Some of the things you’ll need:


Watering can

Screw hook

Screw driver

Start a pilot hole with your screwdriver in the side of the wall of the tire.

By pushing and twisting you can put in your screw hook.

Now, you can hang the watering can off the tire.

Next, fill with dirt if using real flowers and add your flowers.

If you are adding fake flowers, just place in the side of the tire. This is an easy recycling project using things you already have.

You can get so creative with this project so just take a look around your house and see what you can put inside.

    I love it! My grandson painted 2 tires for me last week with something like this in mind. Now I know it will work. :)

    I am going to do this. I have access to some old tires that were thrown out. After cleaning it, I'll paint it. Then use artificial flowers. (I have a black thumb). That way I can change with seasons and special holidays. Thank you for the inspiration and I'll let u know how it turns out.
