Old tires don't have to go to the landfill when they're no longer useful for transportation. You can color them in different colors and make a planter, make a swing for children, or you can make tire ottoman covered with fabric.
I wish I had the time to do this. Make an ottoman out of an old tire! This is an awesome DIY idea ,I would also do this as an outdoor planter. Great use for the thousands of tyres at Naike ( new family plot of land) so maybe a new craft is born.
