How to make a donkey out of tires</a>

Many motorists, "re-bouncing" their wheels in a new tire, wondered: "Where can you put old tires?" The answer is simple.

From them you can make various animals and birds, build pieces of furniture, and also use them as flower beds.

You will need

  • - boards-
  • - aspen sticks-
  • - Screws-
  • - Reinforcement pins-
  • - old tires-
  • - glue-
  • - paint-
  • - a knife or scissors.



Create a shape of a donkey. To do this, from the reinforcement pins, build a frame, which consists of four fittings, driven into the ground and welded to the common peg, stacked on top.


Cut off half of the tire and the strip from the secondParts. Half is attached to the top pin by a screw with screws, and the strip is fastened along the entire opening of the tire. To bond the tire and strip, use glue.


Build the donkey's head from the other half of the tire. The principle of creation is almost the same as with the structure of the trunk: the difference is that the tire rotates from the rupture to the bottom, and the strip from the tire for the scallop is attached from above.


Cut out the ears and harness. Use a sharperly sharpened knife or scissors to make the ears smooth, even and rounded, and the harness is not scratched by sharp edges.


Wrap each leg of the donkey usingA bicycle tire. In order to get bent limbs, you can, preliminarily, bend the reinforcement bar or, having made a hole in the tire, to pass the reinforcement.


Color the donkey. Choose the best acrylic paints, because they do not emit a pungent smell and are safe for children. As an eye, you can use the circles cut from the tires. Also they can be simply drawn.


Attach the ready wagon as soon as the donkeyWill dry out. It can be done very quickly, just make two large circles and attach them to a common piece of wood, from which two sticks, called the team, will leave. There is another option: take two boards, fasten together a common sheet of plywood. At the edges of them, put perpendicular plates and also fasten. Under the resultant wagon are attached two longitudinal rounded sticks, which are driven into the wheels. Circles can be made entirely wooden or partially covered with rubber.
