how to reuse and recycle tires for kids toys

Garden decorations, storage for kids toys, swings, planters, and outdoor furniture are just a few ideas to reuse and recycle tires, which provide a sturdy material for DIY projects, art, and recycled crafts. Sandals, pets beds, containers, rubber buckets, garden decorations and playground climbers are creative ways to design functional and decorative items. Lushome shares inspirations for attractive and amazing DIY projects that give a new life to these useless tires.

It is hard to cut a tire, so use non-steel-belted tires for your projects. Still, it requires patience and a physical effort, but the result is worth it. Garden decorations and functional home furnishings made of halves tires or even smaller pieces look unique, surprising, and original. You can paint them to improve their appearance and to brighten up your DIY designs. Also, you need to cut away waste material behind the cut to give your crafts and artworks a neat look.

Using a circular saw helps cut the tires, but it is not a piece of cake. Make several passes with the power tool at the cuts, sheer away waste material to achieve a clean line. Also, use eye glasses as sparks can fly around when you cut the rubber. If you prefer quick and easy DIY projects, then use the whole tires, which are perfect for making swings, beds for pets, and flower beds. Painted bright colors, the garden decorations look impressive.
