In April of 2015, Mimi’s husband told her it was imperative for him to cut down a lifeless tree in their front yard. “I always have a project I want to try,” Mimi says. “Plus, I’m known for making simple tasks complex.” So of course, she couldn’t just relax and watch him cut down the tree without putting an artistic, decorative spin on the remaining stump. Since that tree was located right near the street, she came up with the idea of transforming it into a Gnome Tree Stump House. Mimi says her husband is never too pleased with her aspiring ideas, but this is one he can live with.
After chopping down the tree, Mimi and her husband gathered all the materials they needed at places like Lowe’s, Walgreen’s, their internal dollar store… and by utilizing throw timber and used items. A couple weeks later, after a storm had passed, Mimi was ready to reveal her DIY project with the world, and we couldn’t help but share it with you also. The Gnome House is complete with the cutest little details like a shepherd’s hook, miniature lantern, wooden windows, and small real flower clay pots. The project continues to collect lots of comments and praise from the neighbors, and has become the cutest conversational piece.
So remember: If you have an aged branch sitting around, there’s something awesome you can do. I couldn’t agree more! Please enjoy, and SHARE this awesome DIY project with your friends on Facebook!
