This Is Genius: Make A DIY Dog Bed Out Of A Recycled Tire

Wait, this is genius.

It’s fun to get creative with home decor, it’s all personal to your own style. Buying decor or furniture at the store is quick and easy, but DIYing something makes it 100x cooler.

I came across this DIY dog bed made from a recycled tire on Practically Functional and I thought it would actually be a cute addition to any country-style home.

Got an old tire and the perfect-sized pup? Let’s get started…

What you’ll need:

  • A tire (obviously)
  • Soap and water
  • Spray paint (designed to stick to rubber)
  • Felt pads
  • A round dog bed that fits your size tire (usually 30″ or 34″)

4 simple steps

  1. Start off by thoroughly cleaning the tire with soap and water, especially if you’re wanting this in your home.
  2. Once it’s dry, set the tire up on its edge and lightly spray the tire with spray paint.
  3. Once the paint it dry, add some felt pads to the bottom of the tire to prevent damaging your flooring.
  4. Lay the tire down and stuff a round pillow or dog bed inside of the tire, and you’re done!
