Mini Cork DIY Succulent Planters
Are you looking to add some greenery to your living space without taking up too much space? Consider making these DIY mini succulent planters using a wine cork! They are not only adorable, but also incredibly easy to create and a fun way to recycle your old wine corks.
To get started, you will need:
- wine corks
- a drill with a 3/8″ bit (you can also use an Exacto knife, but a drill just speeds things up)
- needle nose pliers
- Neodymium magnets
- E6000 glue
- cactus soil mix
- small succulent cuttings.
Begin by carefully hollowing out the center of the wine cork with a drill, creating a well in the center of the cork. An Exacto knife and a little patience will work as well. Safety first! Hold the cork tightly with a pair of needle nose pliers and drill out the center of the cork about 3/4 of the way down. Super easy!
Next, glue Neodymium magnets to the side of the wine cork using E6000 glue. Now it’s time to plant a little succulent into the cork. Start by filling each cork with soil and adding the succulent cutting. Small succulents barely need any dirt or moisture to thrive. These mini succulent cork planters are perfect for small spaces and can be made into a fun DIY project to create with friends and family.
Even better, succulents are known for their low-maintenance nature, making them a great idea for beginners. All they need to thrive is a little sun and a tiny spritz of water every other week! An eye dropper can also be used to add a few drops of water.
