10 ways to decorate (hide) a tree stump in your yard

I was doing yard work and I was trying to think of some ways to avoid getting rid of a certain tree stump in our front yard. Tree stumps are one of the harder features to remove from a yard. They take a lot of money and effort to remove completely. So I have decided for this month's feature to collect 10 different ideas for how to decorate (or hide) a tree stump. Enjoy!

1. Use the stump as a planter

2. Grow climbing plants up the stump to hide it

3. Carve a decorative centerpiece

4. Carve it into a CHAIR

5. Turn it into a fairy garden

6. Use it as a base for a bird bath


7. Or as a base for any d├ęcor (Video)

8. Chess/ Checkers, anyone?

9. Modern Tree Stump Table

10. Hide it with a raised bed (See tutorial for before and after photos)
