We know. It’s amazing.

These textured little beauties are the perfect small-scale Christmas tree solution – and relatively simple to create yourself.

The size of your Christmas succulent tree is only as big as your imagination (and budget), but they’re the perfect solution for anyone renting a small apartment or wanting to spice up their home table.

Of course, as time passes, your succulents are going to want to stretch and grow towards the sun. In most cases, they’ll pull away from the base and your Christmas tree shape is going to start looking a little unusual 😉

But never fear, your succulent Christmas tree will only need a light misting and plenty of sunlight and it will look beautiful all season long.

Once your baby succulents have outgrown the tree, they’re easily replanted and can live on all year long – the perfect gift that keeps on giving.
