How To: Make Tire Seats

Summer came and went in a f l a s h. It seems like we put put away Christmas decor, blinked, and now it's time for fall. Luckily, we managed to squeeze some neat projects in this season. One of our favorite (and most popular) projects were our tire seats. 

The versatility of these seats are truly what make them so cool. Tire seats can be used for classrooms, dorm rooms, children bed rooms, living rooms, our for outdoor use. They can be stacked to keep space available or laid out for cool decor. Either way, these tire seats are sure to be a hit in your home. And as a plus, they are super easy to make. YAY!

Step One: Wash tires thoroughly and let dry overnight.

Step Two: Measure the opening in the tire and cut the plywood one inch larger than the opening. 

Step Three: Paint tires and let dry over night. We also used a primer to ensure a long life for the paint. 

Step Four: Cut the fiber fill/foam into a circle the size of the plywood. 

Step Five: Cut Fabric wide enough to go around the plywood and the some. 

Step Six: Put the fabric over to plywood and foam. Put remaining fabric on the underside of the seat and staple into place 

Step Seven: Screw the plywood seat onto the tire. 

Step Eight: ENJOY!
