Now we have all the material prepared, let's get started.

Step 1: The first step is fill the box with cactus mix most of the way. We want to make sure our little succulents stay healthy after the holiday time so we do not use cuttings for this DIY. If you don't grow succulents but love this project idea, you can also experience with succulent clippings. Make sure you let them callous well before insert succulents in soil.
