Who wants succulents you can stick on your fridge or other metal surface? Yes please! 🙌🌿✨
This weekend we crafted Cork Magnet Planters and want to share it with you. This is how to make a cork magnet planter.
Materials we used:
– Mini succulent – you can use pups/babies from mature succulent plants, or cut off new growth from the top of a succulent.
– Paint – We used Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint – Linen White
– Wine Corks
– 1/4 tsp Soil
– 1/4 tsp Activated Charcoal
– Small magnet – we recommend finding a heavy duty strength magnet
– Masking tape
– Paint brush
– Pocket knife
1. Carefully hollow out the cork with the pocket knife
2. Apply the masking tape to guide where you want to paint
3. Paint any pattern on to the cork and leave to dry
4. Once dry, glue the magnet onto the cork
5. Fill the bottom of the cork with the charcoal (this will help with drainage) then fill the rest with soil.
6. Transplant the mini succulent into the cork – tweezers helped!
Then it’s ready to decorate your fridge! 🌵💚 In about 15 minutes, you’ve learnt how to make a cork magnet planter. When it comes to watering, I only added a drop once a week since it’s so small. Also be gentle when opening and closing the fridge.
