Make Your Own Living Christmas Ornaments with Succulents for beautiful nature inspired Christmas decor.
Remember how I said this year I wanted to push myself to create more things for the holidays using dollar store items? Well here’s another idea and I’m thrilled with the way these turned out!
Around Halloween, I had purchased some succulents to fill pumpkins with. They turned out so good and looked great on my table!
When I put my fall things away and started to take out the holiday stuff, I knew I wanted to reuse the succulents in my decor somehow, and making Christmas ornaments with succulents was the result!
I even used them to decorate my Kate Spade inspired holiday party table.
They’re so easy to make! Here’s how…
- shatter proof ornaments (make sure they’re shatter proof!)
How to make these Christmas ornaments with succulents-
Use the hammer to pop a hole in the ornament. A couple of whacks and an almost perfect circle will pop out.
This is why you need the shatter proof kind.
Then, dampen the root ball of the succulent to give it some moisture throughout the season. Pop it into your ornament and shove some moss in the hole to secure it.
Told you it was so easy!
And OMG, what an absolutely perfect handmade gift to give to someone this holiday season! You could even make the succulents coming out of a DIY marble ornament to make it a little more modern!
These Christmas succulent balls literally take all of 5 minutes to create and look amazing hanging on my Christmas tree!
I hope you love this super easy DIY! Make sure you check out all my other Christmas posts while you’re here. I’m sure you’ll find more that catches your eye!
