You start off with a relatively unimpressive supply list: A tire, wood cut into circles, rope, screws, a screwdriver, a glue gun, a drill, a cloth, a brush, and a jar of sealant.

There are plenty of great reasons to upcycle the old things you have lying around your house: It cuts down on waste, recycles things that would otherwise be forgotten, and puts your creative brain to good use. There's also the practical side of upcycling: Sometimes, you make things that are so extraordinarily useful, you wonder where they've been all your life.

Such is the case with this amazing upcycled tire. It might not look like much to begin with, but when you see what it turns into, you're going to want one for yourself.
