Updating old christmas ornaments

This time I created some fun Christmas decor that you can either keep for yourself, or give as a gift to a friend or neighbor!

Creating a tire project for Christmas is a challenge.

I ran the wire through the hole in the tire and then twisted and secured it into place against the inside wall of the tire.

My 7 year old happened to be outside with me while I was making these and offered up his 2 cents A LOT on how they should look.

I used my staple gun and 1″ staples and stapled around the edge of the plywood into the tire.

I wanted to make sure that nobody poked their fingers on the insides of the tires, so I hammered down the staples, which also prevents them from being pulled out.

One of his ideas was that each of the ornaments needed an ornament hook.

You know, in case you wanted to hang them from a tree.Have you ever thought of or made a DIY project with recycled tires? Just tag me on Instagram or Facebook with @addicted2diy or use the hashtag #addicted2diy. Photographer Tim Leimkuhler shows us all the unique vintage Christmas ornaments the thrift shop is selling right now."I think people want older ornaments, it reminds them of something their parents or grandparents had on a Christmas tree," said Shelly Gordon, owner of Vintage Peddler. Someone probably worked really hard on that.""For me personally, I would definitely shop vintage but that really depends on who you are shopping for," said Kaitlyn Mc Connell, a shopper at Vintage Peddler.We finally agreed and settled on making giant Christmas ornaments.I love when a challenge like this really makes me think outside the box!I used an all-purpose cleaner and a brush to scrub them, then I rinsed them with water and let them dry.I wanted the “ornaments” to be different colors, so I bought some red, blue and green spray paint.I cut out three different stencil designs for the “ornaments.” I sprayed two with white spray paint and then the Christmas tree design was sprayed with green spray paint and then green glitter spray.I was planning to add lights to these, but once they were all finished, I really loved the look of just the painted designs.Thanks to the partnership I have with Discount Tire on this post, I am sharing my recycled tire DIY project for holiday decor and gift inspiration. I’m so, so excited to be partnering once again with Discount Tire to share with you a Christmas DIY project that can be made using your old tires!You might remember earlier this year when I teamed up with them to create a gorgeous planter from an old tire.
