We've all seen some pretty crazy trends come and go this year.

But the latest Christmas trend is actually one we can get behind!

We're talking about succulent trees.

People are using succulents as a genius way to build a miniature "tree" when they don't have enough space for a full-size pine.

Or you could use the chic trees as a festive table decoration during Christmas dinner.

Trust us, you won't be able to stop staring - the creations are absolutely jaw-dropping.

Plus, they're super easy to make!

All you need is some chicken wire, sphagnum moss and a mix of large, medium and small succulents.

Simply make a cone shape with the chicken wire and pin it together.

Then fill the wire cone with some damp sphagnum moss.

Make small holes in the cone frame - chopsticks work a treat to make the holes.

Next, place a succulent into each hole, repeating the process until the entire cone is covered.

And lastly, add a star to the top of your tree ... or some baubles and twinkle lights!
