If you aren’t a fan of repurposing materials that are lying around the home, rusting away, you will definitely like this DIY project.
• an old rim;
• a can of black paint;
• broken pieces of tile;
• (optional) beads;
• brown piece of felt;
• fertile soil;
First, make sure you clean any rust off the wheel and prepare it for painting. Apply a nice coat of black pain on its entire surface.
Next, take a small cutter on the (broken) pieces of tile and fashion them into little chunks which will go nicely in a pattern.
When you are satisfied with the model you’ve prepared on the side move to the next step. Apply a layer of clay on the outside of the wheel.
Before it begins to dry, place the tile pattern. After the pieces are lodged into position, meaning the clay has dried a bit, remove any excess with a wet cloth.
Then, put the piece of felt inside the wheel, pour the soil and plant your flowers. When you think this was just an old wheel, it looks amazing!
