Christmas is fast approaching so I figured it was time get going on some of my holiday crafts.

I’ve been really loving succulents this year, they seem to be the only plant that I can keep alive in my house, so I thought my first craft of the season would be to make DIY succulent Christmas ornaments for the tree.

I had a lot of fun making these and I even got to use my clean dining table, which I haven’t been able to do in 11 months. So, let’s get started!

I began by adding a small amount of sand to the glass ball,to give the succulent a base.

Next, I removed the petite succulent from its pot, carefully removed all of the loose soil and placed it in the sand in the glass ball.

I took a few pieces of the sheet moss and lightly sprayed it with water, to soften it up.

Then I carefully placed the pieces around the succulent.

I used sheet moss to add more green (for Christmas) to the ornament but you could add some stones or other filler.

After the moss was in place, I took my faux berry stem, clipped a few bunches off and placed them around the succulent.

To finish it off, I added a ribbon and my first live Christmas ornament was complete.

So, I would have liked to show a picture of them hanging on our tree, but I’m not ready to put it up yet (as a blogger, is it ok to admit that?).

Anyway, I arranged them on my marble pedestal with some greens that smelled like Christmas, and called it a day.

They’re all ready to hang when I do decide to put the tree up.

I made these about a week ago and I’m happy to report that they are still alive and well.
