You constantly worry about your house if you’re a homeowner. Cutting down falling trees is important to do so that your house doesn’t get damaged if the tree were to fall over. Then a new problem arrives. What do you do with the old tree stump? You can remove it, but that can take a lot of time and effort.

Make something awesome that your kids will love using. Here are 6 things you can try. 

Design a Fairy Garden

Fairy gardens are a great thing to make if your kids have a good imagination. Fairy gardens are a little area that you decorate to make it look like fairies live there. You can put tiny furniture around the tree stump and put a door on it to make it look like a house. Create a walkway up to the house and a picket fence around the stump. Let your kids design the fairy garden and help you put it together. 

Make a Tree Stump Planter

Hollow out the middle of the tree stump and plant your favorite flowers inside it. You can have your kids pick their favorite flowers to plant too. Do this as an activity together and you’ll have fun doing a project together. The tree stump will look beautiful all decorated with everyone’s favorite flowers.

Use as a Pot Holder

If hollowing out the middle of the tree stump is too difficult or you don’t have the right tools, you can simply put your flowers on top of the tree stump. You can use large plants that hang over the sides of the pot, this will create the illusion that the pot isn’t there. This is a simpler way to get the same look as the tree stump planter.

Create a Mossy Stump

You can start growing moss on your tree stump to decorate your yard. The moss will be green and make a fresh look for your yard. People can sit on the stump, for a soft place to sit. This works especially well if you live in a humid and wet place.
