Ray Pantling, owner of Tyres Direct in Bletchley, offers some unique inspiration for your Christmas decorations this year – using old tyres.
Christmas tyredings everyone! Do you want to be the unparalleled, unequalled Christmas tree designer in your neighbourhood?
This month I’m throwing it out there to all you external Christmas house decoration crafters – think outside the box this year when it comes to your decorations and use old tyres for a new look.
Here are some unique ones that will make you the talk of the street, if not the town… Who said Christmas trees have to be evergreen and covered in tinsel?
What do you need? Simply lights, OK, maybe some tinsel, and you can get creating – I can supply the used tyres.
The great thing about using tyres is they are very happy to stand in the cold, they have absolutely no problems with strong winds and your neighbours definitely won’t have them this year.
You will be the driving force locally and definitely have the stand out frontage to your house, or even work!
Even if you do not want a tyre Christmas tree, how about simply putting a tyre at the base, standing a bucket in the middle and standing your tree in the bucket with earth or sand to support the tree. (see photo 2).
Another idea is to not put that wreath outside, but design a wreath yourself around a motorbike tyre or a bicycle tyre (photo 1). Another cool decoration is ‘tyre planters’ (photo 3).
Christmas without a real snow man in your garden? Then try this for a cool design (photo 4).
Check out my Christmas tyres album on facebook @TyresDirectBletch.
Finally, just for the ladies, how about some Christmas tree earnings (photo 5). Be the fun one at the Christmas party and wear these handmade recycled tyre rubber Christmas tree earnings, made especially by me for you!
Merry Christmas from me and the rest of the team at Tyres Direct.
