If your tree stump is hollow, you can skip the first step in this process, which is to remove wood from the center, leaving the outside rim, as well as some wood on the bottom. Next, fill the stump halfway with some potting soil. Then, plant your choice of flowers or greenery inside the stump. This is a great way to beautify your backyard, as well as save money you may have spent on a decorative pot.
If you need an extra seat in the area that your tree stump is in, simply smooth it down and treat it for use as an extra seat. You can also use this idea for tree stumps or other loose tree trunk sections that are not in the ground. Simply smooth them down, treat them, and place them in the desired area of the yard. You don’t need to have building skills for this unique chair, but it will look great in your backyard at your next gathering.
Need an extra place to set things on? Try using a sanded, finished, and treated tree stump. These make great party and garden tables because they’re just the right height and width for this type of usage. If you’re also creating the chairs mentioned above, try to choose a piece for the table that is slightly wider and taller for the most convenient usage.
