After Lili posted this Daily Delight about these gold log tables, I’ve been on the lookout for a tree stump. Recently, I found a perfect little trunk (!) washed ashore at my family’s lake house. As a MacGyver, I wanted to check out all my DIY options before I started working on my new prized possession. I was blown away by all the crafty ways people have used tree stumps (glow-in-the-dark stool, anyone?). Check out a few of my favorite finds:

Log Slice Table
This rustic log slice table would add natural charm to any room. And doesn’t it look lovely adorned with a vase of fresh flowers? Head on over to Seakettle for Jessica’s tutorial.

Wooden Pencil Holder
Talk about crafting in style! Andrea’s rustic pencil holder would be the perfect addition to any craft room. I’m all for storage that’s easy on the eyes.

Ombre Tree Stump Side Table
Can you tell I’m a fan of stump side tables? I love how Ashley gave her table a trendy ombre update with gold paint. Check out Sugar & Cloth for all the DIY details.

Tree Trunk Cupcake Stand
Dotted with dainty cupcakes, this tree trunk stand is the definition of rustic elegance. DIY enthusiast Alina and her husband made this beauty for their wedding. Read the sweet story behind the cupcake stand on their blog, The Yellow Umbrella.


Tree Stump Centerpiece
I love the idea of using slices of a tree trunk to create a unique centerpiece. This lovely centerpiece came from yet another gorgeous rustic wedding.

DIY Wooden Clock Clock
If you read my post about upcycling bikes a couple of weeks ago, you know I’m all about creative DIY clocks. This quirky wooden clock definitely fits the bill – and I love those red over-sized clock hands. Get the full tutorial on Design Sponge.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  3. This very good. I use best for next for girliiiie Reptile Party.
