An ottoman is a useful and beautiful addition to any home, but they can be pretty expensive. Leave it to Jessica Hord to find a creative DIY project that solves that dilemma! She's showing us a tutorial by The DIY Decorator, which explains how to make a lovely ottoman out of a tire. Yes, believe it or not, a tire can be upcycled into a stylish piece of furniture by following these steps!

You can watch the full tutorial on Facebook or below.

Using top quality products from the @gorillaglueau range, I have turned an old car tyre which was destined for the rubbish dump in to a super stylish ottoman In order for me to complete this project, I needed to use glues that were easy enough for me to work with, whilst also being strong enough to last the test of time for a piece which will be moved around and used a lot. PROCESS: Using @gorillaglueau clear epoxy, we attached a pre-cut piece of round ply to one side of the Tyre. (We mixed the two glues as applying on the tyre, but for maximum bonding strength, it is suggested to mix the epoxy with the supplied wooden paddle and then applying to your surface). After filling the Tyre with expanding foam for added support, we again used epoxy to glue on the second board to enclose the tyre. Using @gorillaglueau Clear Grip glue, I began to coil some cotton rope and glue it together to make a starting point for the Ottoman. Then using @gorillaglueau Super Glue, I attached the small coil to the Centre of the top ply wood piece. Then it was simply a matter of using @gorillaglueau Wood Glue to coil the rope around itself until the entire tyre was covered. I initially only planned on using the wood glue on the ply parts, but it has such a tough grip once dried and was so easy to work with, that I continued using it on the rubber area as well. To add some interest, I finished the ottoman, with a strip of Raffia Trim which I applied again using the Clear Grip glue. I am SO happy with how the upcycled piece turned out and it was such a fun project to do in the comfort of my own home.

Elephants In Trouble

Elephants In Trouble

This first elephant is in trouble because it's the one causing the trouble. It marched into a village in India and began ripping through the wall of a building. To retaliate, the residents threw firecrackers at the poor creature in an attempt to scare it off. Eventually, it wandered away. Over at Oldonyiro Community Conservancy in Kenya, three helpless elephants were trapped in mud and couldn't get out on their own. Rescuers hauled each elephant out of the mud with a tractor. After some time on solid ground, each elephant was able to recover and stand up on its own. View Now
