    If they serve a purpose beyond color decoration and something else to clean, might be worth the investment of time, energy, and money. Might make cute deck tables.

    or you could leave them natural and put a little chip in the lip of the pot and make it into a toad or frog etc. house

      Most pots are ok outside unless they fill with water and crack .. these would be upside down so think they would be ok. Get pots from cahrity shops, boot sales etc, great projects for half term. Could also use pots which have chipped for the frog/toad houses.

    Thank you for the idea of the mushrooms!! We have tree stumps in our grove area left over after a wind and rain took down 17 of our trees. I think I will put some of them on cement squares so the termites won’t get them and nail on covers from the 5 gallon buckets. I can paint them and make stools out if them for my yard. We have nothing but shrubs, bushes and perennial flowers on our corner yard so those would brighten things up a bit. I have pondered for three years what to do with them, thank you!

      You could also put a roof on your stumps and paint them to look like birdhouses or fairy houses.

    I’ll bet these would make good bird baths too, as the inside of the ‘lids’ are painted too, also could be used for bird feed in the winter…too cute!!!

      Turned the tops of these mushrooms the other way, right side up, and you have a bird bath. I have made several of these into bird baths.
