Make a hanging tyre planter
Use an old tyre to make a unique hanging planter for flowering and trailing plants
You will need:
- Drill with 10 or 12mm metal drill bit
- Potting soil
- Trailing plants
- Rust-Oleum Painter’s
- Touch 2x spray paint
Spray the tyre with two coats of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch 2x, which is a paint and primer in one, allowing the paint to dry in between coats.
Drill at least six drainage holes at the bottom of the tyre. Use a metal drill bit as there’s steel inside the rubber.

Fasten your rope using a hangman’s noose knot.
Fill the inside of the tyre with potting soil where you’ve drilled the drainage holes, and plant the plants in the soil.
Hang your planter from a beam on your veranda or from a tree. Fasten it with a regular noose knot.
