Use an old tyre to make a unique hanging planter for flowering and trailing plants

Materials you will need:

  • Tyre
  • Rope
  • Potting soil
  • Trailing plants
  • Rust-Oleum Painter’s
  • Touch 2x spray paint
  • Drill with 10 or 12mm metal drill bit

Step 1

Spray the tyre with two coats of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch 2x, which is a paint and primer in one, allowing the paint to dry in between coats.

Step 2

Drill at least six drainage holes at the bottom of the tyre. Use a metal drill bit as there’s steel inside the rubber.

Step 3

Fasten your rope using a hangman’s noose knot.

Step 4

Fill the inside of the tyre with potting soil where you’ve drilled the drainage holes, and plant the plants in the soil.

Step 5

Hang your planter from a beam on your veranda or fro a tree. Fasten it with a regular noose knot.
