Oh my this is such a nice suggestion, as I have a friend who has a nice tree that died and now needs to come down, but it has great sentimental value to her family. This project would,be a lovely way to keep that memory of her family and that tree. I do see where you would need to seal it depending on the type of tree and how bad the shape of the outside bark. There is also the issue of bugs! But how pretty this would look filled with flowers a, thank you for such a sweet and thoughtful idea!

I never thought of recycling the tree stump as a way to keep plant dirt from getting all over the floor. I love how natural and simple the look of the craft is because it will go with almost any design I choose. Thanks so much for posting a unique idea!

I just love this Tree Stump Idea DIY Planter. I made one a few years ago for our back deck. I would like to suggest putting sealer on the outside on the bark as well. Over time the bark will peel if it isn't sealed. I Drilled a few holes in the bottom of mine for drainage, I have some smaller wood seasoning to use next year for planters to use inside. This is a great way to bring the out doors in.. Thank you for sharing this free DIY
