There aren't many greater joys in life than the act of swinging. This recycled tire swing from Stephanie Lynn is sure to bring many memories to her family members, big and small. All it takes is a tire and a few bits of hardware to put together a piece that will be well loved all summer and then some.

Stephanie Lynn of Under The Table and Dreaming had some help from her husband to put together this super awesome tire swing! They're lucky enough to have this wooded area in which to hang it, but smaller, strong trees will still do alright.

Stephanie kindly shares their tutorial, including an equipment list that you can take straight to the hardware store. We love that they remembered to drill holes in the under side of the tire to allow for water accumulation to drain out. We have many childhood memories of soggy shorts from swings that weren't so thought out! There's also a long rope with knotted handle to help give a boost if you're swinging solo (so mom and dad don't always have to be outside to push!).
