Hello, I am popping in today to show a cute DIY Mini Succulent Christmas Tree that is perfect for your holiday decorating.
If you follow me regularly (and I hope you do), you know how much I love adding natural elements to my decor. Fresh flowers and live plants of any kind are my love language. So today, I am adding succulents to my Christmas Decor.
What you will need:
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, plug in your glue gun. I am using a styrofoam cone and a floral cone because it’s what I had on hand. You can find cones at your local crafts store or shop the links (affiliate) I’ve provided above. You can see my affiliate policy here.
I cut one of my trees down so that the heights of my two trees are different. Then I glued a wood slice to the bottom of each cone.
Next, glue the moss to your cone. I am wrapping one of the cones with Spanish moss and the other with Sphagnum Moss for variety. Be careful not to burn your fingers. At this point, I doubt I have fingerprints left. ;-
Continue adding moss until you can’t see the cone.
Trim off the individual plants.
You will need to clean off any dirt or leaves to have a clean surface to glue the cutting to the moss.
Glue the cuttings directly onto the moss. And work your way around using different sizes and colors until you are happy with the pattern.
Fill in any empty spaces with the smaller cuttings.
I also filled some spaces with Reindeer Moss for some texture. It’s the brighter green and beige moss you can see in the shorter Christmas Tree.
Once your mini Christmas Trees are full and you are happy with them, trim any moss sticking out.
I love the simplicity of these cute little succulent trees just as they are, but you can add some fest cheer by adding string lights or ornaments.
Keep your succulent Christmas Trees away from heat sources, as they will dry out faster. You can mist the succulents lightly every week or ten days, and they should last for 4-6 weeks. I have used this process with mini pumpkins, and it’s adorable for Thanksgiving decor!
Let me know what you think! If you make your own send me a pic or tag me with a photo on my A Life Unfolding Instagram.
Until next time,
