Holiday DIY - Making Your Holiday Succulent Snow Globe

Holiday Succulent DIY Project

The holidays are here, and the Christmas decorations are out! You may be looking for ways to incorporate your love of plants into your holiday decor. Now, there are plenty of wreaths and dish gardens out there, but we wanted to create something truly unique, easy, and of course, festive! We're going to take you step by step on how to make your very own succulent snow globe centerpiece.

Holiday Planting Materials

Before you get started, here's what you need: 
  • A short pot
  • Craft moss 
  • Fake snow
  • Small Pinecones/berries/Christmas decor
  • A clear spherical vase that fits the top of the pot
  • 3 succulents

Step 1: Planting Succulents

The first step is to plant your succulents in the short pot. Arrange them around the center of the pot, away from the edges.

Once they're in place, tuck the craft moss around them and fill it out to the edges of the container.

Step 2: Add Holiday Decorations

Next, add your berries, pinecones, and any other decor you would like. After you've finished decorating, sprinkle the fake snow over the moss to create a mini winter wonderland!
