using what you have on hand is key to saving money, but who knew it can also be loads of fun?! here’s a fab way to turn a stump and a few rocks into an adorable garden table game collect a few rocks with the kids and paint them as bumble bees and lady bugs.
use a woodburner to burn a tic tac toe board onto a round wooden table top. you can get the table top piece from a home improvement store, or online at amazon. screw the wooden top onto the top of a stump.
spray it with a polyurethane sealer.
paint half of the rocks red & black to make them look like ladybugs, paint the other half black and yellow to look like bumblebees. the little wire baskets can be found at the dollar store. the wire basket works best because it prevents rain from building up and creating a breeding ground for mosquitos.
