Holiday Succulent Ideas
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Getting your Christmas decorating in order doesn’t have to be a chore. In less than 30 minutes, you can make easy succulent baskets that will brighten up and transform your doorway or hallway during the holidays.
You can also create a festive terrarium to look like an ornament to hang around your home. If you don’t have a terrarium, you could also use glass hurricane lanterns, glass beverage dispensers, glass bowls or large quart mason jars. There are lots of possibilities.
To get started, place the fern moss cone or hanging basket on top of a Homer bucket to help steady the planter. With a sharp pen, poke drainage holes in the bottom of your plastic pot saucer and insert inside the basket.
For hurricane lantern terrariums, just add your blooms with additional cactus soil. You can also add pond pebbles for height (we took them right out of our yard). Finish off your lantern terrariums with colorful ornaments and pine cones and you’re holiday decor is ready for prime time.
