Introduction: Mini Planters From Wine Corks

Save wine corks from special occasions to create mementos for friends and family.

What you'll need:
1 wine cork
A magnet 
Small succulent cutting (I used pinwheel succulents)
Potting soil
Glue gun
Screw driver
Knife

Step 1: Step 1: Hollow Out Cork

Carefully hollow out the center of the cork with your screwdriver. I used both a screwdriver and a small kitchen knife. Continue until you have hollowed it out halfway.

Step 2: Step 2: Glue Magnet Onto Cork

Step 3: Step 3: Fill Cork With Soil & Add Succulent Cutting

Step 4: Step 4: Water Planter With Straw or Eye Dropper

Hey there.

I saw this idea somewhere else on reddit and had a try myself.

I bought some 10x2mm neodymium magnets on amazon and had one fit inside the cork. This way I won't see it on the outside and it looks nicer. Ofc, this requires you to cut out more cork from the center. If you try this, make sure to place the cork vertically straight and as close as possible towards the outer edge, so you'll get as much magnetic power as possible. I also made some cork magnets which you can see on the bottom and left of the picture

Succulents are really resilient, so you can try cutting off a small leaf from a larger succulent plant.
