Clean tyre and al­low to dry. Place a cake board on one side of the tyre so it cov­ers the open hole. Use a drill and screws to at­tach the board to the tyre at three points around the edge of the board. Re­peat 2 on op­po­site side of tyre. Using the hot-glue gun, ap­ply some glue (the size of a 10-cent piece) in the mid­dle of one of the boards. Work­ing quickly, at­tach the end of your rope to the glue. Once the glue has dried, start coil­ing the rope around it­self, ap­ply­ing glue to the disc as you go. En­sure the rope is flush 3 with pre­vi­ous coil. Once the top of the tyre is cov­ered, flip it up­side down and con­tinue coil­ing un­til the sides are cov­ered. There’s no need to cover the bot­tom of the tyre with rope as it will be on the floor. Top with a tray and use it to dis­play mag­a­zines, flow­ers or knick-knacks.
