DIY projects are always really fun. You learn new skills and experience the satisfaction of doing something creative all on your own. So, if you’re ready for your next DIY project, here’s an idea: convert old tyres into something that’s cool and functional.

If you’re scratching your head to the idea of tyres in a DIY project, you need to think a bit more creatively. Old tyres have very useful applications in both industrial and home settings. For example, tyre-derived fuel is used to power kilns and crumb rubber can be used in a variety of landscaping projects. That’s why companies like BSV Tyres will happily take all of your old tyres.

If you’re still having trouble coming up with ways to use old tyres, don’t worry. Here are few ideas to give you some inspiration:

Build a Fort

Yes, adults build forts too (and if they don’t, they really should!). Of course, you’ll need quite a number of tyres for this project but that’s no problem. All you need to do is pull out the contacts in your phone and ask all your friends if they have got any spare tyres lying around. This is also a great opportunity for you to get them involved in the projects. If you’ve got cool friends, they’ll definitely jump at the chance to build a fort out of tyres.

If you have kids, a tyre fort could make a great DIY holiday project.

Improve your Garden

If you want to give your garden a really unique look, a couple of tyres can help you out. For instance, you could fill one or two up with soil and use them as planters. If you’ve always wanted a hanging garden, you could also put up one on the wall. If its colour tends to stand out from the other planters and pots, you could simply paint it a different shade.

Build a Tyre Swing

If you’re kids have been pestering you for a swing set but you don’t won’t to spend all that money, then consider the much cheaper alternative: a tyre swing. Other than an old tyre, all you need is a piece of rope and a sturdy tree.

If you don’t have kids, make a tyre swing anyway because they are just so much fun! There’s no reason that adults shouldn’t experience childish pleasures once in a while.

Exercise

They’re a plenty of ways you can use tyres to exercise. If you’ve watched any football movie (American football), you’ve probably seen athletes making their way through an obstacle course of tyres. All you need to do is tie some tyres together and lay them flat on the ground. These obstacle courses are also great for exercising your dog.

If you’ve ever been to a gym, you may have noticed people doing all sorts of workouts with tyres. For instance, some people flip tyres, which can strengthen a variety of muscles including the arms and the back.

These are just some of the things you can do with old tyres. With a little bit of creative thinking, we’re sure you’ll be able to come up with even cooler DIY tyre projects.
