Crafter Made Football Mascots Using Tires

Blake McFarland is known for his creative mind and crafty hands. He makes a lot of different things out of unique materials while saving the environment. He transformed a spoon into a palm tree, a coffee can into a hand saw, and Ramen noodles into a Toy Story character.

This time, together with Goodyear Tires and Cotton Bowl he made tire sculptures for the two competing NCAA football teams; Penn State University Nittany Lion and the University of Memphis Tiger.

“Start to finish, these sculptures were completed in just 15 days! The timeframe is always the hardest part of these builds,” the artist shared with Bored Panda. “The reason there is such a short timeframe is because the NCAA announces the teams on December 8th, which leaves me only a couple of weeks to complete the team’s sculptures to be presented at the game.”

To create these mascots, he needed over 400 Goodyear tires, thousands of hidden staples, screws, and 400 man-hours to complete it.
