How to Reuse Old Tires
1. A Tree Swing
If you have a strong tree in your backyard, you should consider installing a tire swing. The process is way too simple: all you have to do is to take a rope and hang the tire from it. The swing will not be solely for your kid as you can also take a few rounds on it and relive your childhood.
2. Use for Exercise
If you have used tires of heavy-duty vehicles - or even the light ones- you can include them in your exercise routine. You can use bigger and larger tires for flipping them. This is a good form of exercise as it helps strengthen your back, hamstrings, and glutes. You can also use light tires for squatting and lateral jumps.
You can also use heavy and big tires to create a sandbox. For this purpose, tractor tires are the best. For this project, you will have to paint the tire and then add the sand into it. You can also tie an umbrella in the middle of the umbrella to prevent it from absorbing too much heat during summer.
4. A Hose Caddy
Just like your handsfree, your garden hose also tends to get tangled, making you spend a good five minutes while untangling the hose. The best way to keep the hose organized is to use a heavy tire that can act as an organizer. Cut the tire into half and store the hose into it. This is the best way to keep your hose safe.
5. Decorate Your Gardens
Who said that you have to use one-design pots in your garden. If you want to add some color to your garden, you can use old tires as flower pots. Paint the tires and fill their insides with soil and fertilizer. Now, plant a plant and see it grow.
6. Beds for the Stray
It pains our heart to see homeless and stray animals going from one place to another in search of warm shelter. If you cannot keep more cats or dogs in your house, you can at least provide them a comfortable bed. Use an old tire to make a bed for the stray and keep it outside your house. This easy-to-do project will definitely help a stray animal to have a comfortable sleep.
