Repurposed inspiration - Tires

Chloe's school uses re purposed tires all over the playground. They have a giant tire pyramid for the kids to climb, they have tire flower planters, and they have tires just laid on on the ground for the kids to jump in or sit in. They painted them all sorts of fun colors and it really is cute. 

I think the most known recycle for the tire is the tire swing

Here is a DIY project of a tire wall planter.

These tire planters sit on the ground and are the ones similar to the ones at Chloe's school

These planters are adorable! This idea can also be used to make little tire seats!

You can take an old tire and make a cute cushion for it

My friend made some tire seesaws for her son's birthday party. 
They were cute. You can find a DIY instructions post on how to make one here

Here are some eco chic seats and side tables made from the company Tyred.

Oh and by the way... if any of you are in the San Diego area... you should check out the HUGE Earth Day Fair at Balboa Park.... 75,000 people went last year... and James and I have to work a booth there... so you could come say HI!

On the colorful stacking tire planters, where can I find instructions or better yet, how do you keep the soil in the upper tires? I take it the sidewalss are not cut out?
