Birch logs can be a beautiful addition to your holiday decorating. Stack them next to the fireplace in a galvanized pail or copper bucket. Lean taller birch branches against a wall as a natural backdrop. If you like to use power tools and have a little free time on your hands, this may be something you want to tackle. The end result is a very unique, natural coffee table that would be great in a den, or family room or any room.
