Succulents are an amazing addition to any household, and they're easy to look after - so what's not to love?
If you need another reason to get some more succulents around the house, this trend will be perfect!
Succulent Christmas trees are a relatively new idea, and are taking the arts and crafts world by storm.
They are a perfect solution if you want a Christmas tree, but don't have the space required.
They are so cute, and they are very easy to make!
All you need is some chicken wire, sphagnum moss and a mix of large, medium and small succulents.
Simply make a cone shape with the chicken wire and pin it together.
Then fill the wire cone with some damp sphagnum moss.
Make small holes in the cone frame - chopsticks work a treat to make the holes.
Next, place a succulent into each hole, repeating the process until the entire cone is covered.
And lastly, add a star to the top of your tree ... or some baubles and twinkle lights!
Will you be trying out a succulent tree this festive season?
