Doughnut Tire Swing!

How to Make a Doughnut Tire Swing

Get an old truck tire and scrub it with soapy water.Let Dry Completely

Drill some large holes all around one side of the tire.The hole side will be on the back side of the swing.
The holes will keep water from collecting inside the tire.

It also help keep mosquito's from nesting in your swing.

Paint the side of the tire that has the holes the color you want your doughnut to be.

We chose a golden yellow. Let Dry.

Flip tire over and paint the"glazed" frosting color.
We liked chocolate brown.
Paint it wavy to look like it's dripping down in the edges.
Once the"chocolate"color is dry, add sprinkles with a small sponge brush.
Use all different colors.
Once that is dry, spray with a clear coat of polyurethane spray paint.
This helps keep paint from peeling.

Now your tire swing is ready to hang.
We will give hanging instructions soon.
