How to Make Mini Succulent Cork Magnets
Here’s a little secret, I don’t really drink wine very often. My parents and aunt and uncle, however do! They drink the fancy stuff. I prefer fruity drinks.
But there is one thing about wine that fascinates me – why do people always save the cork? My mom has bags of them. So does my aunt.
So, being a craft designer (I’m always thinking of what I could be making next), I thought I’d recycle some of these wine corks and transform them into mini planter magnets.
This project is a clever way to add green to your kitchen. Sure, you’ll have to spritz the plants every so often, but really, that’s not that big of a deal.
For the complete tutorial go to Mother Nature Network. While there, check out other projects I designed for them.
So all you need to do this project is:
- Succulent cuttings
- Craft knife
- Hot glue
- Cut holes into the cork.
- Hot glue the magnet to the side of the cork.
- Stuff soil in the cork
- Put in your plant.
So easy and oh-so-cute!!!
