Unfortunately, when you walk through the forest these days, you see discarded car tires lying around. On the one hand, this is not good for the environment and, on the other hand, you can actually make pretty cool things out of discarded car tires. So if you ever find a wrongly disposed of tire in nature, grab it and get the hot glue gun out! The following 4 DIY ideas show you how ingeniously car tires can be upcycled.
