Are there any trees in your outdoor space that you want to eliminate? If yes, there are lots of ways to make good use of the stump. Don't just cut it out and throw it away! Look at some tree stump decorating ideas on how to provide new life to your tree stump.
One idea is to remodel your tree stump into a planter. A stump makes an excellent setting for a collection of marigolds, daisies, or geraniums. If you don't want to dig out your tree stump, you could just put little pots of flowers on top of the stump. Using containers of various sizes brings interest to the arrangement. Be sure the stump surface is even, so your pots don't slide off.
A Bird Bath
Make a quick birdbath by placing a big shallow bowl or saucer on top of your tree stump. These sorts of beautiful dishes are available at garden and home stores. Be sure the pot is attached to the stump’s head, so pets don’t knock it down. Put some seeds inside, so birdbath appeals to a whole host of visitors. They will so ever be grateful.
Use a tree stump to showcase a piece of garden sculpture. For instance, you could set up a silver or gold gazing ball on the stump to offer it a more prominent place in your landscape. You could also put a stone bunny, fairy, or frog on top of the stump and encircle it with flowers to make a pleasant and beautiful scenery.
This is a fun choice if you have children who enjoy playing tic-tac-toe. All you need to do to the stump is level the top and draw a tic-tac-toe board on it. Players can put big O’s and X's on the game board. They can also use colored chalk to make their O's and X’s. When they want to play a new game, all they need is a damp cloth to wipe the board clean.
The best thing about reusing your stump is that you don't have to pay a tree contractor to pull it up and take it away.
