When life gives you wine corks, make teeny tiny planters! Isn’t that how the saying goes? This Pinterest-worthy project is made using recycled wine corks and your choice of succulents or air plants.
- Wine cork
- Small air plant or succulent plant
- Drill or screw driver
First, use your drill or screw driver to make a hole in the wine cork large enough for your plant. For succulents, fill the hole with a tiny bit of soil and plant as usual. For air plants, there’s no soil needed so place the plant in the hole or glue the plant directly onto the cork. Once you’re finished, glue a magnet to the back of the cork so you can display it proudly on your fridge. To care for your tiny planter, provide bright light (but not direct sun) and water as usual.
Tip: Having trouble choosing the right sized plant? Use the rule of thirds! Pick a plant that is about 1/2 the height of the cork. It will be 1/3 the overall height of the finished planter and will look just right. Simple!
