In many parts of the world, it at last feels like spring is well on its way. And garden lovers are perhaps of those most looking forward to the season.

Yes, it’s time to start preparing your beautiful plants for the warm season.

I absolutely love creative gardening hacks that can really do wonders for your front or backyard. We’ve previously showcased many examples, such as this wonderful flower boxes, or this brilliant egg trick.

Now, we introduce something even more unique: a flower pot made of old car tires! Yes, you read that right. The best thing about this trick: it’s extremely inexpensive – and relatively simple to do.

Follow the instructions below and don’t hesitate to share this trick with a friend who might appreciate this too! 

You need:

Old car tire

Knife
Paint
