DIY Succulent Wine Cork Planter Magnets

Steel appliances and white cabinets with geometric white backsplash tile are key players in my kitchen dreams. And after a recent remodel, my outdated kitchen got a swoon-worthy makeover. Now, I need to break up all that white and steel with some warm, natural accent pieces. Wood cutting boards and colorful towels were a good start, but I wanted to add a little life to the room’s decor.

These DIY succulent wine cork mini planters are the perfect tiny touch to break up all that cold metal. Hand-painted geometric shapes add a rainbow of color to breathe even more life into my minimalist, modern kitchen. Plus, what’s bad about a craft that requires you to drink wine? Check out the tutorial to create your own.

Step 1: Using a screwdriver, sharp scissors, or drill bit (whichever you’re most comfortable with), bore a narrow, long tunnel into the middle of each wine cork.

Step 2: Apply washi tape to each cork in a crisscrossing or diagonal arrangement. Smooth tape edges to ensure a secure bond.

Step 3: Select a palette or color scheme for your corks as a group. I chose a 3-color spectrum color combo for each cork that created a rainbow scheme when all the corks were viewed together. Using a small paintbrush and craft paint, color each section of the taped cork with a different hue. Set aside to dry.

Step 4: Adhere small magnets to each cork using hot glue. Set aside too dry. Then, insert small air plants or low-maintenance succulents into each mini planter.
