Can someone please give step by step directions on how to make the wine bottle planters please? These are really appealing to me. Thanks!

i love the tires just the way they are, i am using them on my building which is painted white with black trim and the black frame of the plain tire around my colorful flowers goes with my building and sets off the bright colors of the flowers :) i also saw a picture of a wall built from tires with flowers planted inside, each tire was painted a diffrent neon color, while this was more bight and noticible i liked the whimsy and the neon paint set off the tread pattern and added another dimension to the idea :)
