Make a cute fairy house from an ugly tree stump

Gnome Tree Stump House

Trees add beauty to your landscape, increase property value, and provide shade from the hot summer sun. But dead trees can be an eyesore and need to be removed immediately. They are tripping hazards that are likely to attract pests.

But why go through the grueling task of removing a dead tree stump when you can turn it into cute garden decor?

Mimi, the owner of the gnome tree stumpĀ house you see above, though she couldĀ do something creativeĀ with the dead tree stump instead of having her husband cut it. The tree stumpĀ was located near theĀ street, and so the first thing that popped into her headĀ was to build a house – a gnome tree stump house!

ItĀ isĀ indeed a great idea. Instead of letting the tree stump become an unpleasant sight on their property, they turned it into a cute fairy house that even the passers-by liked!
