Do you know how happy I am that I finally found a use for the wine corks I’ve been saving? Well I’m VERY happy!
I was at the OC Mix Mart today, and saw the cutest little things….these wine cork magnets with succulents in them. The were on sale for $5 each. I was about to buy a couple, when I got my bearings straight and remembered how crafty I actually am. So why not make them myself?? Obvi. Also, I have an obsession with succulents anyways, so it’s just one more use for them. :)
So I came home and made them. And BOOOOOOOOM…my very own wine cork succulent magnets. And because I love to share good ideas, I am excited to share with you…steps to making wine cork succulent magnets!
Wine corks. A magnet roll with a sticky backing. A handfull of dirt. Miniature succulents. Also some super glue and a toothpick.
STEP 1: This was the most annoying part, so I had to recruit my lovely husband for some help. He hollowed out the wine corks about 70% of the way with a drill bit. It was simple and took him ten minutes. But I have no idea how to use a drill, so he was crucial. So I should probably add to my list of supplies needed, “husband with drill bits and know how.”
STEP 2: Fill wine cork hole with dirt and insert miniature succies (my nickname for succulents). I used a toothpick to pack the dirt a little, as well as push down the stem of my succie.
STEP 3: Cut two small pieces of magnet and super glue the sticky side to the back of your cork.
STEP 4: Put on your fridge and stare & smile with glee because you have these:
Okay give it a try and let me know how they turned out!! Or, if you’re really nice to me, and bring me cupcakes or something, maybe I’ll make some for you. :)
