A good planter is hard to find. This is why it’s often better to take the DIY approach. You get exactly what you want, and perhaps something a little different than what you would find in stores. Using a tire planter tutorial offers a unique planter that hangs on your wall.
Valspar spray paint (color is Exotic Sea)
fabric weed barrier
Optional: chain and s-hook.
Looks almost like a hanging Easter egg, lol
As for what you decide to plant inside, that is entirely up to you. You could keep it as decorative and plant various flowers inside. You could also make it more functional and plant herbs such as basil and Rosemary inside so that you have access to fresh ingredients for your kitchen. Just be sure to plant herbs in a terra cotta pot then place inside the tire.
By using an old tire, you get to repurpose something that would otherwise not get a respectable second life. If you don’t have an old tire from your latest trip to the mechanic, you can buy a used one for cheap at a tire shop. Since it is never going to go on the road, a tire shop might even give you one if they know they can’t sell it.
You get to choose the color you’re going to paint the tire. This means it doesn’t even matter the tread level of the tire. Choose a color that works well for where it will hang. Then, all you really need is potting soil and what you will plant inside.
