Drivers of cars or bicycles often face the problem of punctured and already unusable tires. And they have absolutely nowhere to put them: who will put it on the balcony, who will throw it out. But you can try to give these tires a second life, and now we’ll look at how to do it.
The decor of the garden
You can also use old tires as a decorative element for your garden. There is enough imagination here. For example, flower beds. Put the flowerbed on the ground, cover it with earth and plant flowers-and your flowerbed is ready. Or a baby swing. You can tie a tire to a beam, paint it a certain color for the sake of beauty, so that children can happily go out into the garden and swing on a swing. Do not forget about the good old, found in many yards, a Swan made of tires (instructions can be found on the Internet).
Tires can be used to create amenities in your garden: you can create a small bike Park next to the house by digging the tires close together; you can make an umbrella stand by poking a couple of holes in the tire.
Walking on wet stairs often becomes the cause of numerous injuries. To avoid this situation, people usually buy special anti-slip coatings. But with old tires on hand, there is no need for such a purchase. Trim the tire, put it on the steps – and the non-slip coating is ready!
Furniture of tires
Creating furniture from old tires is based on one principle: think of what exactly you want to do, give the tires a certain shape, and then paint or tie them with threads/yarn. There can be many furniture options: a country pouf made of two tires with a soft pillow, a comfortable small table or a small country chair.
Bed for your favorite pet
Surprisingly, the tire can also be used as a comfortable bed for your pet. You just need to take a tire, you can paint it in a color suitable for the interior of the apartment, or leave it without painting and put it in the garden at the dacha, put a soft blanket inside and leave it for your dog or cat to settle in.
You can use different tires to create large and small ponds. You need to dig a deep hole with a diameter equal to the diameter of the tire, put sand in the hole, and then put the already cleaned tire. Covering the tire with a layer of waterproofing (you can use the same one that is used to protect swimming pools or plastic wrap), we create a covering material. We decorate the pond with stones or flowers. So, you can create two or more ponds side by side and connect them in a decorative way. You can even make a pool, but it requires more skill and knowledge.
Do not rush to throw away, as you think, unnecessary things. With a little creativity, old items can serve you for a long time and delight your eyes for decades to come.
