Each year gives us a couple of new Christmas tree trends that we didn’t see coming and succulent Christmas trees are really making a splash in 2020. They’re now offered by many Etsy sellers thanks to their sudden rise in popularity, but making your own is always an option.
Succulent trees may be trendier than ever, but that doesn’t mean people haven’t been making them before this year rolled around. They’ve actually been around for years and you can find a bunch of tutorials on YouTube that will teach you how to make your own.
Our personal favorite was shared by the YouTube channel eHow and it will walk you through the process of making a succulent Christmas tree in under a minute. All you need are some floral greening pins, sphagnum moss, succulent cuttings, a pot with stones, and chicken wire.
To avoid getting hurt, put on some gloves and use pliers to form a cone with chicken wire, before filling it with the moist moss. Once that’s done, place the cone inside the pot, decorate it with succulent stems, use greening pins to secure them, and your succulent Christmas tree is good to go!
