Old tires don't have to go to the landfill when they're no longer useful for transportation. You can color them in different colors and make a planter, make a swing for children, or you can make tire ottoman covered with fabric.
This crochet dragon is magical! It would look amazing hooked up with the Red Heart stripes yarn, or any other combination of variegated yarns and bright solids. Definitely making this one for my kiddo for Christmas.
