Flowerbed of old tires

Any owner of the suburban area would like his territory to be the most beautiful and unique in comparison with the neighboring areas. Although in our time, a wide range of jewelry and materials for decorating a site is offered in stores, you can still design your plan yourself, saving your money on it. In this article we will look at one of the options for how you can make a unique decoration yourself, namely a flower bed of old tires. This flower bed has the shape of a large cup.
For this work we will need:
• Two tires;
• Metal profile (50 - 60 cm);
• Scissors for metal;
• Plastic bottles (at least three);
• Screwdriver;
• Screws;
• Shoe knife;
• Acrylic paint;
• Brush.
For the manufacture of this flower bed, we need two tires. One of them should be less. Such old tires can be asked for free at any tire shop.

The next step is to make a cup handle. For this we need a metal profile, as well as metal scissors. Retreating every 10 cm is necessary to make incisions in the side of the profile. It is necessary to bend it comfortably. The edges of the profile must also be cut and bent so that it is convenient to fasten it to the tires.

Next, using metal screws and a screwdriver, you must fasten the handle to the bottom and top of the cup (to the top and bottom tire). These two tires also need to be stapled together. This is done with screws in the inside, as shown in the illustration.

In the end, this is such a cup. Note that the third element, which was cut from the side of a large tire, is the basis of the flower bed, and plays the role of a saucer or stand.

After the cup is ready, we proceed to decorate it. To do this, we need 3 or more plastic bottles, namely their lower part. The base of the bottles can be trimmed with a construction knife and scissors.Thus, we get flowers that can be painted in any color you like. With one screw you need to screw the flowers on the top of the cup.

The next stage is painting the flowerbed itself. Acrylic paint is the most suitable for this purpose. Its advantage is that it retains its brightness perfectly, and does not fade with age. Here you have the opportunity to express your imagination, and use those tones that you like. The final stage of the work will be filling the bowl with earth. Then you can plant flowers in it. This flower bed will be an excellent decoration of your summer residence. Its production is not difficult, and with the necessary tools, such a cup can be made in just a few hours. This element will be able to bring creativity into the design of your territory, as well as to surprise and astonish those who will pass by this flowerbed.
