DIY Christmas gifts for stoners don't have to be basic or tacky. In fact, with the right motivation, they can be elegant, useful, and much loved by those who receive them, but you've gotta' pick the right one if you're hoping to wow someone this year, and if you're drawing a blank, then this is the perfect place for you. Here we're going to walk you through how to make one of the prettiest, most functional cannabis gifts out there, and it's officially been coined a moon rock Christmas tree.

What are moon rocks?

You'll need some of these for this incredible project to work, so you must have a good understanding of what they are so that you can either buy or make some. Moon rocks are made using fresh cured cannabis flower that is layered with a hearty dose of cannabis concentrate and then sealed in with a final touch of kief powder. Of course, usually, these treats are just individual little balls of skunky goodness that look odd, but here, we're going to show you how to put them together in a way that makes a masterpiece worth sharing.

How to make moon rocks into perfect little Christmas trees

If you think about it, we're kind of surprised that this hasn't been thought about before, as moon rocks are small balls, which can quite easily be put together in a way that resembles a tree, but it's important to do it in the correct steps using the more appropriate ingredients. Otherwise, you'll just end up with a giant sticky mess that isn't exactly easy on the eyes.

What you'll need

  • 15-21 moon rocks (depending on size)
  • Kief
  • Cannabis concentrate (something sticky and thick, as it must harden to hold it all together)
  • Dab tool
  • Brown paper
  • 1 mini Christmas bowl
  • Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Line the moon rocks up in the shape of a Christmas tree, starting with one single nug for the tip of the tree and ending with either five or seven, depending on the total you chose to incorporate.

  2. Now you have the general shape of a Christmas tree, and this should show you which parts of the buds will need to be connected with concentrate, but to do that, you might need to warm it up a bit either in your hands or a microwave so that it's easier to spread and work with. That is especially true if you're working with the ideal concentrate, shatter rather than BHO, as it will provide the most support for your tree once it hardens.

  3. Start at the top of your moon rock tree and slowly work your way down, doing one row at a time and leaving each one to dry by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes.

  4. Row after row, a thick layer of concentrate will glue together the moonrocks until they all come together in the shape of a Christmas tree. Once you get this far, you'll want to seal up any exposed concentrate with kief as it may be sticky to the touch, and we don't want it to fuse to the wrapper that we add later.

  5. Once the tree is complete and any exposed blobs of concentrate are covered in kief powder, it's time to wrap up this beauty so that it's presentable for the holidays. To do that, place the tree in the middle of a large piece of brown paper, and then gently fold up the sizes until it encases the mood rock tree and is tight enough that you can make out the shape.

  6. Trim any excess paper away and then stick the edges into place with some clear tape.

  7. Wrap the tree once from top to bottom, and then again from side to side, until it looks like a perfectly wrapped present.

  8. Use the scissors to curl the hanging bits of ribbon, and then slap the bow onto the top, and voila, you're done! This smokable Christmas gift will provide hours of pleasure, and it will be a whole lot of fun for anyone who has the pleasure of unwrapping it.
