From Tire Rims To Spring Planters!
I wanted to plant spring flowers, but did not want to pay for planters. So, I figured, the next best thing was for me to convert these tire rims, that were just collecting dust in my shed, to planters! Who doesn't like to save money!
Plants and/or flowers of your choice
Spray Paint (Rust-Oleum Satin & Rust-Oleum Multicolor Textured)
Step 1: Wash rims and let them dry completely. Depending on the condition of your rims, you may need to clean them with a bristle brush to remove the rust.
Step 2: Prime rims with a coat of spray paint. Once dried, I gave them a second coat of paint.
Step 3: For the last coat, I used Rust-Oleum Multicolored Textured spray to make it seem like the rims have texture.
Step 4: Once the paint on the rim is completely dried, I placed the rim on top of the saucer. To fill up the rims, I used tree trimmings and dried leaves.
Step 5: I also added some dirt, and covered everything with soil.
Step 6: Before planting the flowers, I moistened the soil with water. Then we planted the flowers.
Step 7: The last step is to water the plants!
And this is what the final product looks like!
