Decoration of the country plot is not limitedbright drawings, flower beds and purchased sculptures. Minor details in the overall perception of gardens are as important as they are. Many of them can be made with their own hands, and advice on creating crafts from old tires will help you in this.
Sculptures of old tires
If the tires are properly painted in your gardenyou can make a lot of bright animals from all corners of the world. It is enough to prepare several tires, allocate a little time and apply your imagination. How to make a swan Increasingly, swans can be seen not in ponds and other water bodies, but in gardens and household plots. Our yards were chosen by whole flocks of these beautiful birds made of unnecessary tires. If you, too, are an admirer of such crafts, but do not know how to build them, then read the detailed master-class on creating swans from tires. In order for your site to have such swans, some materials and tools will be small, will have to work hard. Prepare several old tires, electric jigsaw, electric drill, well sharpened knife, metal rods, chalk for marking, as well as colors of different colors. For work, choose worn tires from cars. They should be worn, because the thinner they will be, the easier it will work for you. Immediately discard and do not take into account rubber with spikes from foreign manufacturers. If you have the opportunity to choose, then give preference to tires with a nylon cord, they can easily be cut with an ordinary, well sharpened knife. If you use tires with a metal cord, without certain tools you can not do. Before you start work, the rubber must be washed and dried. And the work itself is best done outdoors. The general view of the swan on a straight line depends on the scheme by which you will mark the tire. First you need to chalk the markup on the tire, the diagram is shown below in the illustration. Label the head, tail and wings. To make it more clear to you, we offer you an additional photo that will explain the whole process of working on the cutting of the swan. When marking a bird, note that the length of the neck along withthe head should be greater than half the circumference of the tire. Suppose, if you use the wheel R13, then the length of its circle is 180 cm, then the neck will leave 95 cm to make the head proportional, its length should be 10 cm, and the beak - 9 cm. After the markings are drawn, proceed to cutting the tire. If you have chosen an old tire with a nylon cord, then you will have enough knife. To facilitate the work, prepare a soap solution and periodically dip a knife into it. First, cut the tire over the contours of the head and neck. The biggest mistake made by almost all newcomers is that, cutting out the neck, the tire is cut completely first along one line of the neck. In this case, the second side will be extremely difficult to cut. Do not cut very large sections on one side or the other. The next step will be working with the tail. Its length is 25 cm. It is a decorative element, its manufacture will provide an easier turning of the tire. It is cut in the same way as the neck. Now you have to work hard to turn out the tires. This is done in this way: turn the tire with the cut side down, press it down with your foot and pull the side pieces up, while turning them. Sell down the center piece. Now the general construction began to resemble a bird. Further lower the side rings down which will serve as the wings of the swan. If you have chosen a tire with a metal cord, then in addition to the additional difficulties in working with it, you will receive a product with a sticking armature. In any case, the edges need to be treated with a Bulgarian. Please note that such a swan can only be used to decorate the garden, it is strictly forbidden to place them on children's playgrounds, anyone can get hurt. After this, the bird needs to be shaped correctly. To do this, drill 2 holes every 15-20 cm of the length of the neck. They need to insert staples from a thin wire and stretch along the entire length of another piece of wire, which must be steel and solid. You need at least 1.5 m. The upper end should be fixed at the level of the head, the lower one at the base of the neck. In general, the swan is ready. It remains to give the bird's neck a proper appearance and make eyes of rubber, which are screwed with screws. For decoration, the wings can be shaped like denticles, so they look like feathers. If you want, you can additionally make a crown from a plastic bottle. Paint your sculpture. Most often for swans choose white or black. But remember that the paint lasts longer, it should be applied to a clean and dry surface. How to make a cochlea from a tire As in the previous version, it is best to choose an old worn tire without a metal cord. She perfectly succumbed to cutting an ordinary well sharpened knife. If you have a jigsaw, then the work will be done much faster. In addition, prepare a screwdriver, screws, a pair of metal rods, as well as gasoline with emulsion paint. The washed tire should first be cut in such a way that one continuous strip is produced from it - you have to cut off the side parts. Now, using chalk and a photo as a sample, you must map out the head and horns of the cochlea. Under this scheme, you will need to cut out the future sculpture. Then again, thoroughly clean the rubber, wash it and degrease. The finished rubber band is twisted in such a way as shown in the illustration. You should get a kind of shell. Fasten it using screws with a screwdriver. To ensure that the snail's head is always in an upright position, metal rods must be inserted from the opposite side. The sculpture is left to paint in the most suitable color and decorate her face. Set the snail on a pre-prepared place so that it can become a real decoration of your garden.
Vases made of tires
Currently, there are manythe possibilities of purchasing dacha decorative items in the store, and the pot is no exception. However, it is much more pleasant and cheaper to make it yourself. Materials at the same time you can use absolutely any. But today we will talk about how to make a vase from an old tire. It looks no worse than those that are made of plastic, wood or gypsum. In addition to the tire itself, you will need cement, sand and primer, gravel (pebbles) of not very large size, a plaster grid (wire), soap solution, and paint. From the tools, prepare a jigsaw, a grinder, a stiff brush, a well sharpened knife, a brush, a bucket and a trowel. To begin, cut off the side parts of the tire. Draw a chalk with a chalk trim and cut the tire along this line. To facilitate this process, periodically dip the knife into a soapy solution, cutting the rubber will become much easier. If you want to perform a more intricate pattern, then use electric jigsaw. Now the tire needs to be turned out in the opposite direction. It takes a lot of effort and time. After that, proceed to grinding the edging of the flowerpot. To do this, you need a grinding machine, so you give the product a more aesthetic appearance. Next, create a leg. For this purpose, you will need a disk. Attach the remaining two parts of the tire to the disc (the remaining piece and the sidewall). The base is completely ready. It remains to decorate the pot. Apply a primer to the pot and foot, and then you can paint the product. Choose lighter colors, because they burn not so strong as the dark ones. At this work on the creation of a flower pot can be andto finish. However, if you want to give it a more original and attractive look, you can decorate the foot using stones and concrete. Wrap the leg with wire. This is to ensure that the concrete is fixed to the vase more reliably, the wire can be replaced with a special mesh used for plastering. Make a solution of cement, water and sand (1: 0.5: 3). To better fix to the rubber, it should go out quite thick. Apply the trowel to the foot, sprinkling it. At this moment, remove the pot to the side, so it will not get soaked. Immediately begin decorating the foot with pebbles (pebbles, broken glass, etc.). After the adhesion has occurred, wash the stones by brushing the excess solution. To the leg does not crack, it should be watered for the first 3 days. The villa is ready, left to fall asleep with its black soil and plant seeds.
Swing of tires
Well, what kind of childhood can you imagine without a swing. In the park and in the courtyard - this is an essential attribute for a bright and fun pastime. A small play corner for your child can be built and houses on the backyard. To do this, you do not need a lot of money. Near the house you can always find a suitable place to arrange a swing. There are a lot of options for their manufacture. However, the most budgetary and simplest way is to build a swing out of the tire, especially in this case the use of materials will be minimal. The main thing is that there is a desire, and the number of variations is large enough, so you can always find the most acceptable for yourself. The safest for children is a swing made of tires. With a possible impact, the force of the rubber seat will be less than that made of wood or metal. Making a street swing is not so difficult, evenif you do not have any specific skills. Sufficient is the ability to dispense with a welding apparatus or hammer - it all depends on whether the swing is metal or wooden. In either case, two pillars are installed (decide whether they are made of wood or metal), where one aspect is important - the bars should be large enough in diameter, because They will have to withstand significant loads. The crossbeam is cut into the upper part. In it, you need to screw in the bolts with rings, on which the rope will be hung, its ends will be fixed on the tire. The seat of the tire can be manufactured in two ways. In the first case, one single tire is used (holes for the rope are made at the sides), in the second case, the cutting parts of the two tires are used. If in the first case everything is clear, then the second option should be discussed in more detail. Here it is required to cut off the upper and lower parts, only the side ring is useful in the work. Another tire is treated in this way and folded in half - it needs to be placed across the first, closing the free area inside the first tire. Of the 2 tires you should get a cross. In this case, the tires are fixed to each other, use a bolt, a double washer and a nut. Just pre-make holes for future fasteners. The seat of the tires can be attached using ropes or chains. In advance, think about the holes for fastening. If you have a suitable tree on the site for making a swing, then consider a few points. The minimum permissible diameter of the branch is 15 cm, its height should be within 1.8 - 3 m from the ground. If we talk about the strength of the rope, use the rope in its work, it will be attached only to the tire.
