Re-purposed Planter

I've wanted to make a tire planter for the longest time & I decided this was the year.
Before doing a big tire I decided to try out an old wheelbarrow tire I had.
 I marked the zigzags with chalk & cut. Now Ive read some people say that tires cut easy, this was not my experience, I got a huge blister on my hand & my arms were sore for days!
Turning the tire inside out was no easy task either. I've learned a lot depends on the individual tire.
This tire had a rim making it a perfect fit for an old birdbath base I had hanging around.
A can of black spray paint & its perfect!
