Help the environment by making recycled car tyre planters.


Save old car tyres from going into landfill by upcycling them into fun DIY projects for the home. Try turning them into a stunning, long lasting ottoman for your living room or recycle them as fun planters for your garden. Look for small tyres that are flexible and follow out step by step guide below. 

Gather your supplies 

  • Recycled rubber tyre
  • Geotextile fabric
  • Potting mix
  • Selection of plants (we used a mix of ferns)
  • Chalk
  • Utility knife
  • Jigsaw with metalcutting blade
  • Drill and bits
  • Screws

Here's how


...

Step 1

Using chalk, draw a wavy line around top edge of the tyre.

...

Step 2

Make a small incision along line with the utility knife. Insert jigsaw blade and cut along the line. Put cut out to 1 side – this will form the base of the planter.

Step 3

Put tyre on ground and turn inside out by holding in place with feet and slowly turning over the edge.

Step 4

Place flipped tyre over base. Line bottom with geotextile fabric, ensuring it fits well or cut to fit, as needed. Secure lining to tyre edge and base with screws.


Step 5

Position in desired location in garden. Part fill with potting mix, plant up and backfill. Water well.
