Old Tires

I thought this pile of tires was rather sculptural.

It certainly brings up the question of what to do with old tires - there are a lot of old tires out here. Lots of them.    You'll be glad to know that this bunch did not get burned with the rest of the old shed that they were pulled out of. 

I don't know what the owners plan on doing with them, but I thought it might be fun to see what others do with old tires, so here is a list of links to projects using old tires.  You'll get a kick out of them.

Here is a list of images that came up in a search for 'project old tire'.  Amazing.

Here is a collection of ideas from Pinterest.  And here's another, even more fun  Pinterest board.

Check out the sculptures at the bottom of this post.

Here are some garden ideas.

This is one of the best lists of all - super creative things here.

And I loved the chairs and the climbing wall in this list.

Just a note:   From what I've seen and read, it is perfectly safe to grow food in old tires and that there is no leaching.  However, there are loads of people out there that are sure you're going to kill us all if you plant in tires.  Do your own research first, if you're nervous.
