Planting in a chair:
Find an old chair that you’d like to use for your chair planter. Next, remove the seat so there is room for the planter to fit. If you’d like to paint the chair with spray paint then pick a color of your choice or leave it natural. Allow the paint to dry over night. Then find chicken wire at a hardware store, to hold the soil. Roll out the wire and push it down so it creates a bowl shape. Staple the wire to the seat and then snip off the excess wire. In the garden section they have coco liner and that will prevent the soil from falling out. Then use potting soil and plant which ever flowers that you would like to use.

Old and used tires:
Find some old used tires and add potting soil inside the tires. To make them look prettier, simply paint the tires with spray paint and use which ever color you’d like. If you want to make sure your using the right paint, just ask someone at the paint store for the proper paint to apply. These work great for a vegetable garden or planting flowers.
