You can also use a Jigsaw to cut around the tire rather than a sharp knife. This will give you the nice pointed edges for the flower petals. Pull the body of the tire away and make sure you put a sponge in the bottom with a hole in it for drainage so that your plants won’t get waterlogged. Now you’re ready to fill with potting soil and start planting!
You can also use your recycled Tire Flower Planter as a hanging basket instead of a garden planter. It will look beautiful on your decking or verandah.
