Cork Planters

These cork planters are super sweet. They are easy to make and make awesome fridge magnets. We also think they’d make for great upcycled gifts. Got a wine or plant lover on your list? We’ve got you covered.

These cork planter fridge magnets make for a quick and easy DIY. They’re simple to make  and only require wine corks, magnets, some soil and succulent clippings. For tools you will need a hot glue gun, a pairing knife and a screw driver. If you’ve been saving your wine corks for a special project then you will love these cork planters. If you are having a special bottle of wine be sure to set aside the cork and make a special memento from it in the form of a succulent cork planter!

Step 1. Assemble your corks and get out your pocket knife or kitchen pairing knife. We recommend working over a box or newspaper to contain the cork carvings.

Step 2. Punch a hole in the cork with the head of a screwdriver.

Step 3. Take the pairing knife and wiggle it around, carving out a hole into your cork.

Carving tip – Your hole should go about halfway down the cork.
