This recycled tire belt tutorial turns tired-looking bike parts into shiny new accessories. What's even better about this tutorial is that two belts can be crafted from a single bike tire, which gives a tire even more mileage.
Bicycle tires are difficult to recycle, but this upcycled craft hardly takes any time or materials to repurpose. The Recycle Lovers tutorial requires an old belt buckle, a tire, a pair of scissors and a screwdriver.
After a bit of tire disassembly, the length of tire can be cut down into shape, which isn't too far off from how they already look. Since there are a number of different tread patterns, there are endless options for how this tutorial will turn out when it is made over and over again.
