  1. I love all of these ideas and I have a whole lot of tree stumps from this past year. I wish I could carve faces like those! But I can do pedestals and stepping stones!

  2. just keep in mind…in a couple years down the road it will start to rot….unless you use something to preserve it well!!!

  3. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. Create your own table for open-air dining! To start, ensure the surface of the stump is as flat as possible to give you a level base. When choosing your tabletop, consider materials that strike the right ambiance for your outdoor living space—salvaged wood for a rustic retreat, metal for a modern vibe or even a large concrete slab for no-nonsense fun. For stability, insert one or more large bolts through the top of the slab and into the stump. There you have it—a simple table, perfect for lazy weekend breakfasts!

  5. This delightful fairy garden successfully incorporates natural elements with whimsical childhood treasures, and it’s sure to provide endless hours of entertainment for the young and the young at heart. This project makes it easy to see why fairy gardens are one of the most popular tree stump trends today. With the addition of a mossy roof, colorful mushrooms (fairies love mushrooms!), a tiny ladder, and a welcome sign, this stump is ready for any tiny winged guests who may visit.

  6. This idea has been on our to-do list for a long time and finally, when the sun was still shining (remember that, UK folks?!) we had a go at making our own fairy garden for outdoor play times.
