These recycled (or rather upcycled) tire pots I spotted on a blog dedicated to repurposed goods caught my eye. I love the different tread patterns and the way succulents look in them. When empty, they make light weight, durable storage containers. (And cute hats!)

Pots Made From Recyled Tires by UBeauty, HGTV design blog
Sold by UBeauty, the pots are made in Pakistan from 100% recycled tires in accordance with the “Certified for Compliance of Ethical Trading Initiative.” The small workshop where they are manufactured used to be a leather-crafting shop but had gone out of business. Using traditional methods, the craftsmen now make a living producing these vessels and containers.

How would you use them? For storage? Or for indoor or outdoor container gardens?

    About 5 years ago while clearing out an area in my yard….I found some discarded tires in the deep grass….wondered how I was going to get rid of them….then had a brain-storm……I sprayed them with paint primer and spray painted them with dark green paint……put down some weed block and placed the painted tires on top…..filled them with potting soil and plants…….and surrounded the tires with bark mulch….looked great!!!!!
