Melissa’s got a simple, stylish idea for you that will take your Christmas decorating to a whole new level – here’s how to create a succulent Christmas tree that will be the talk of the table!

Start by creating a cone out of chicken wire and stuff it with damp sphagnum moss or you could use coconut coir. I’ve started by creating a cone or then weight a bowl or pot using pebbles. The pot Melissa’s using is from the Northcote Pottery Italian Terracotta range. Then using succulent cuttings of different shapes, sizes and colours – poke them into the moss through the chicken wire.

If you’ve got succulents with no stem – thread floristry wire through the ends. Keep adding succulents until the tree is covered – add in some Christmas baubles too for extra sparkle! And don’t forget to top it off with a star.
