DIY Easy Christmas Succulent Centerpiece and Snowman

0 Comments

One of the benefits of growing succulents is that you can use them as decor without harming them. We all know that succulents are so sturdy, hardy, drought-tolerant, and are capable of adapting to new surroundings, making them able to be replanted or propagated once you want to take down the craft or once the Holiday season is over.


And with our DIY Christmas succulent centerpiece, you can use one of your favorite succulents or whatever you have on hand. You can even succulents like Echeveria and cacti for this project as they have a rosette shape and subtle coloring, making them suitable for creating different types of crafts.


Moreover, this project would only take about a few minutes to make before you can have your own beautiful DIY table centerpiece to enjoy throughout the season and on Christmas Day!



How to make this DIY Christmas Succulent Centerpiece


Step 1:

Prepare your container and fill it with Cactus Mix. Make sure to use a cactus mix as regular potting soil retains too much moisture and is not ideal for succulents because excess water will cause them to rot. And since this container does not contain a drainage hole, it is more necessary to use a cactus mix.

You can also put some pebbles on the bottom before filling the container with Cactus mix to enhance drainage.

Step 2:


Using your hands or a spoon, make some small holes (or pit) in the cactus mix where you want to place your succulents.

Place your succulents and make sure to fill in the spaces with Cactus Mix so that they are sitting atop the soil.

Step 4:

Cover the soil with perlite to give your centerpiece a gorgeous Winter-Wonderful look. Plus, doing this is a good way to promote better drainage for your succulents.
