Car and Tire Themed Birthday Party

What can you do with an old tire? How do you decorate for a birthday party on a dime?

The answer is in creativity!

One reader sent in the idea of using an old tire to create endless birthday party decorations, such as unique “tire-track” birthday invitations, place cards, banners, paper tablecloths and more. We decided to check out the idea. If you have a child who loves tires, cars, and racing, these simple and inexpensive party ideas are perfect.

Let’s make some tire tracks for your car or racing themed party!

Car and tire themed birthday partyItems Needed:

Old tire, black paint, roll of craft paper.

I rolled out the craft paper, set the tire on one end, used a baby wipe to dip into the paint, and smeared the tire treads with black paint. Then I gently pushed down on the tire as I rolled it down the paper. It worked great!

After the paper dried, I was able to cut some very cool banners/streamers out of the tire tracks, along with set a table using the paper as a tablecloth.
