5 of our favorite Halloween DIY tire decorations

If orange is the new black, then Halloween decorating is definitely the new Christmas decorating. (It’s also largely orange AND black. Anyway.) We’re not sure when or why Halloween decorating exploded, but it definitely has, and we have to admit that we always love a good party!

One of our favorite DIY decorating trends is, of course, tires! Turning old tires into something new and pretty (or a little spooky) is a great way to recycle, and it doesn’t have to be expensive! Here are some of our favorite Halloween DIY tire decoration ideas:

Tire spider

These spiders are adorable. We liked them so much, we used them as inspiration for our Creepy-Crawly Tire Time Halloween display! Here’s the tutorial we followed: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/238409374012771311/


There were no instructions with this pumpkin, but it looks pretty straightforward. Get a small tire – like from a lawnmower. Grab a can of orange spray paint, a pumpkin face stencil (they sell them in the pumpkin painting kits), and then use it as a standalone centerpiece, or fill it with other fall-colored things.

Mechanic scarecrow

Obviously, this speaks to us on a personal level. How could we not love this scarecrow held up by a tower of tires? We made a few changes in our version, but we still love the original version. Just stack up some tires, stuff a shirt with some straw, and use your imagination for the head. Here’s where we found it: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/238409374012743677/


Not into carving jack-o’-lanterns? How about painting some, instead? These fun jack-o’-lantern-inspired tires range from silly to spooky, and you can personalize them however you’d like! Here’s where we found it: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/238409374012743667/

Castle & dragon

This isn’t necessarily for Halloween, but it’s too cool not to mention. This tire tower has been decorated to look like a castle, with a tire dragon protecting its base. Here’s where we found it: pinterest.com/pin/238409374012846709/
