Procedure:


I know I'm totally jumping the gun here but who can resist, I clearly couldn't!

  • The first layer should be your active charcoal to prevent mold and bacteria from growing.

  • The second layer is your stones, place them towards the back of the ornament to even out the weight and to make enough space for your soil. I used two different colors to jazz it up*😬

Succulent Themed Holiday Ornaments

  • Place a small mound of soil in the center of the mound of stones.

  • Grab a small amount of moss, roll into a ball using both of your hands and gently stretch it out to create a small nest-like mound.

  • Place the mound of moss right on top of your soil.

  • I chose 2-inch succulents because they fit perfectly inside of my ornament. I used succulents straight out of their nursery pots so there was no need to prep them days before by cutting their stems and waiting for them to callous over like I usually do. I did make sure to clean off all the dead leaves and shook off most of the soil they came with. After I cleaned my succulent I used my chopstick to make a hole in the center of the mound of moss and snuggled in my succulent making sure the stem touched the soil underneath the moss.

  •  I replaced the silver string the ornaments came with, with a red and white jute twine.

  • I found super cute stickers at Michael's craft store and placed one right on the top center of the ornament. A little "foo foo" as my mother would say, makes all the difference*😊
