Painting on a tree trunk

cathy8091August 12, 2007

I have a tree stub on my front yard. It stands about 3ft high and 2ft wide. I am trying to get the bark all of and then I want to paint something on it. Any suggestions?

You could paint it to look like a fairy house with a door and windows. Or you could paint flowers all around it. Sorry, I can't really think of anything else tonight--guess I'm just too tired. I'll think on it overnight. Luvs

Type "decorative painting" in your web browser line and you'll find several sites where you might get some inspiration for a design.

Let's see....are you going to put anything on the stump like a planter?? If so you could paint trailing vines with flowers down it like they are coming down from the real plant. Or I saw somewhere that a lady painted little tiny rock climber people on a big rock. It was soooo cute. Gosh I guess you could paint just about anything you like. How about some cute bugs and butterflies like they just climbed or landed on it. Or you could paint a totem pole depending on how tall it is. Maybe an owl peeking out of a painted hole? If you like Native American art you could paint petryglyphs on it. Just stare at it for a while and see if anything speaks to you. ha Hope you'll share a pic when you get it done. :) ~Anj
