Tree stumps are a perfect material for garden decorations, but also for small decorative items for indoors. They can also be very easily transformed into garden planters that will bring diversity in your garden decoration and will get a completely new function and new life. If you have old trees in your garden that are either a feature, a part of the boundary to your property or act as a screen and shelter to your home and garden from the neighbors, but they suffered wind damage, or just have grown too much you may consider trimming them or remove the branches completely before they cause any hazard to your home.
However, you can keep the stumps and recycle them. You can add some paint to a tree stump if you want, but the true beauty lies in its natural look.

Everyone notices a decorated stump, and you can easily create an instant showcase for beautiful flowers.
