Introduction: Tire Chair

This is a step-by-step process on how to make a tire chair. There's only a few simple steps that will create a fun, spunky, and unique chair that will catch peoples eyes. You can use this chair in your yard, your bedroom, or even to watch a sports game!

To make this chair of joy just like me you should use:

A tire of any size


Spray Paint

A drill

Drill bit thick enough for your rope

Step 1: Drilling Holes

Drilling your holes! In order to complete this project you're going to have to drill hole. For the yellow tire we put 16 holes, but that all depends on the size of the tire. These holes should be parallel with each other and straight so when you begin to weave it is straight and comes out looking fabulous.

Step 2: Painting

Now we have moved on to painting your tire. I have found that using bright colors works and looks best. Nobody will see the bottom of your tire so if you do not want to flip it over to paint it, then you do not have to! The paint is also not necessary, it's only to make it look nice! We used spray paint to paint this, we had to do about three coats, the darker you want the paint on, the more paint you should use.

Step 3: Weaving

As seen in the video weaving is what takes the longest.Make sure before you start you have enough rope to complete the weave. The tighter you want the weave the harder youre going to have to pull the rope. At the end of weaving you can always go back to pull it tighter, as seen in the video.

Step 4: Finished!

After you have complete the weaving process you are finished with your tire chair! You can stack your chairs to make the taller or use them individually. Bring it anywhere and enjoy!
