Making a Succulent Magnet

Succulents are all the rage right now. I have a close friend who could name off types of succulents like Bubba naming off ways to serve shrimp to Forrest Gump—and I mean that as a compliment! I have a couple succulents in some planters, but I wanted to find an even more creative way to show off some of these pretty plants in the house. So…I came across this: succulent planters made out of wine corks that are refrigerator magnets.

This is like the perfect storm of house décor for me.

I always need magnets for the fridge. I ALWAYS have wine corks on hand…don’t ask. And I LOVE succulents! This is the best thing ever!!

Here’s what you’ll need and how you do it:
Wine corks
A pocket knife or kitchen paring knife
A screwdriver
Small magnets
Hot glue gun
Succulent clippings

  1. Punch a hole in the top of one of the corks with the screwdriver.
  2. Use the paring/pocket knife to carve out a hole in the top of the cork—it should go about halfway down the height of the cork.
  3. Repeat until all corks are hollowed out.
  4. Using the hot glue gun, glue a magnet to the back of the corks.
  5. Fill the corks with soil and place a clipping into each.
  6. Place on the fridge and admire your handiwork!

It’s super easy and so cute—give it a try!
