Succulent Christmas Trees (and instructions for DIY)

Palm Tree Lights - Photo by Eric RisbergLiving in a warm climate, we tend to see Christmas Trees that look more like this one – Palm trees decorated in lights. Being from the north originally, It took some getting used to at first, but they eventually grew on me 🙂

Another consideration regarding holiday trees, is the fact that we kill trees just to decorate them?
Ok, I’m not too much of a tree hugger but I am somewhat eco-conscious and I like the idea of a living tree. In fact these days, I put up a little artificial tabletop tree & that’s enough for me.

However, I loved coming across these succulent Christmas trees. I adore succulents, they’re so colorful & easy to care for and these trees are SO creative! One is even a full sized tree and absolutely amazing. The work that went into it is incredible. At the bottom of the post, I’ve put up a video from Urban Dirt TV on how to make your own. It looks like a lot of fun!
