Create a flowerpot from the tires
The necessary materials and tools
In order, that would make a pot of tires You will need the following materials:
Small pebbles (pebble or crushed stone)
Plaster mesh or wire
Of the tools you will need:

The basic process
So, first, You need to cut one of the side parts of the tire (the second must be a). It is recommended to cut the sidewall is not strictly along the contour, and creating a decorative edging, that will make the vase for the flowers more than the original. Before starting work it is recommended to draw a line, at which you will cut, then moisten the blade of a knife with a soap solution (so it will be easier to cut).
It should be noted, if you want to make complex curved clipping the pot, it is best to use an electric jigsaw. As in with a knife, it is recommended to facilitate the cutting process with a soapy solution.
After, as the sidewall will be cut off, the tire must be turned inside out. In this case, again, it is possible to facilitate the work, cut a little metal cord with the help of grinding machine.
Please note that, the eversion of the tyre will require the efforts, therefore, it is best to start from one edge and gradually move to another.
When the tire is turned, you must cut the edge to bring to the ideal state. To do this, use grinding machine.
Next, go to the foot of the pot. Ideally a leg for a pot of tires must be rim. All you need, to assemble the two parts of the tyre (cut the sides and the remaining piece) on the wheel, as shown in the picture:
Now, when the "body" of the pot will be collected, moving on to product design. Rim, along with "rubber" should be carefully primed and painted in any color. Recommended to use light colors, t. to. they will not fade in the sun.

Next, knead the solution in the ratio cement/sand/water 1/3/0,5. Cement mortar must be thick, otherwise rim it will not cling.
After thorough mixing of the solution, apply it on your disk with a trowel (do).
Recommend this event to mount the rubber on the disk.
That would not stain the pot, the drive needs to be put separately on any surface (for example, for sheet metal), then proceed to throwing cement mortar.
Once the solution is fully applied, immediately start processing the legs natural stones. It is best to use small pebbles, although it's just as nice to look at the broken stained glass.
When the solution is a little "grab" elements of decor (pebbles) thoroughly rinse with water and a brush to remove stained cement stains.
Also recommended for 2-3 days slightly wet the concrete leg with water, to prevent cracking of the ware in the sun.
After, as the leg fully hardens, you can fill the pot and fertile ground to plant flower seeds.
