Today’s post is about our DIY tree stump planter we made in the stump of our 80-year-old fallen oak tree.
The tree was huge!! The original oak covered about ¼-⅓ of our quarter acre lot with
After it split, it was dangerous so we had no choice but to take it down. We decided to leave the stump a little taller than normal and use it in some creative way.
In 2015, we made the stump into a table with an umbrella.
After four years of exposure to the elements, the table top warped and the tree had started to rot.
So we decided to turn the stump into a planter.
All it took was….
- a hammer
- a large flat head
- an electric drill
- a small garden shovel
- a bucket or bowl (for mixing cement)
- rubber gloves
- potting soil
