Since the movie Despicable Me came out in 2010 Minions have become a popular and mainstream character. When Pili, from My Sweet Things, and her kids stumbled upon two old tires while out walking the dog they decided the tires would be a great addition to one they already had laying around the house for their dog. They knew that combined together the three tires would be perfect as a new planter decorated to look like a Minion.
Using the tires, some blue and yellow spray paint, homemade newspaper stencils and odds and ends around the house Pili and her daughters were able to create a Minion planter to include in their garden. Once they’d placed the planter in their desired location they used some old shutters from a nearby abandoned house to create a base in the bottom and then filled the Minion with soil and their plants.
Here’s their finished product.
