I thought it would be fun to add something living to my faux tree this year. I made a few of these Succulent Christmas ornaments for my tree. These would be great to gift to anyone that loves plants too!
Succulent Christmas Ornaments
- 2 inch potted succulent (find at your local hardware store, and some grocery store floral department or buy from Amazon)
- Plastic open face ornaments (I bought mine at Amazon)
- White sand
- Cactus mix soil
- Decorations: mini pine cones, berries, glitter, ribbon are just a few great options
First you will need to remove succulent from pot and remove as much dirt as possible. Run the roots under water to remove any excess dirt.
Grab your ornament, add a layer cactus mix soil and top off with white sand. Nestle the succulent into the sand. Use some decor to spruce it up, like mini pine cones, berries, glitter balls whatever inspires you. Finish off with a ribbon on top.
Care instructions: mist once a week to keep succulents happy. They are very low maintaining and can pull the moisture it needs out of the air. But, misting will keep them super happy. These will stay healthy and happy through the new year. You can even replant them after the new year if you like.
