Put some magic in your garden with this great décor idea – a wishing well planter made from recycled tires!

It’s the perfect addition to your garden and it’s so easy to make. Follow the step-by-step instruction here and you will have your wishing well planter in just a few hours.

Wishing Well Planter Recycled Tires

First, you will have to cut two square holes on each of the three tires. These holes are where you would insert the roof supports, so their dimensions would depend on the size of your timber. Stack the tires on top of each other, securing them with landscaping adhesive. Make sure that the holes you cut are aligned!

Next, paint the tires so that it looks like a real wishing well. Spray paint the tires with any color that you desire and then add white lines to get the illusion of a brick well.

Now building the roof for your tire wishing well would depend on the materials available and your idea for its design. If you need inspiration, you can choose from several ideas shown in our gallery below. Ultimately, you can use a variety of materials for your wishing well roof. You may use real roof shingles, timber slats, plywood, PVC pipes, or tire cutouts if you have an extra tire. Paint the roof structure, if you want, before attaching it to the tires.

Don’t forget to add a hanging basket planter! This will complete your tire wishing well planter and a rustic water bucket is perfect for this!

Note: You also have the option to do away with the hole-cutting step. You can simply attach your roof supports after painting by screwing them along the outside of the tires. Use adhesive as well for a more secure structure.
