Dead Trees Around the Property?

Be Creative! You can add whimsical visuals to your yard with literally, next to no cost by using recyclables which you probably have laying around your garage!

With two sadly dying trees I had on my property (and I hate to see a tree go) but besides planting a new seedling elsewhere, I can have fun creating these useful and charming items from the stump left behind (as long as you don’t cut it off to short)!

Visitors get a kick out of our tree-house, with an old metal roof, wooden door and window, mail box and stone sidewalk, not to mention the window box (a metal tin my wife had kicking around)! She painted the door and mailbox as well as curtains inside the window.

The time-out chair doesn’t get used often (thanks to our well-behaved grand kids) but it has become another conversation piece, a novelty item which brings many chuckles…and sometimes threats of things to come if they don’t behave! Nestled in the children’s play area…a gentle reminder to “play nice.”
