DIY Cork Magnet Planters from {nifty thrifty things}

Unfortunately crafting days with my mom have gotten to be a rare occasion, but every now and then we find some time. For example when Mr. Nifty takes Ella for a bike ride.

During the last bike ride, we created these cute mini cork planters. A quick and easy DIY that doesn't require much material.

What you need:
  • small magnets
  • glue
  • some flower soil
  • little plant cuttings
  • Wine cork

How it's done:

  1. Loosen up the center part of the cork with a corkscrew.
  2. Use a sharp knife to get a hole about 3/4 down the cork.
  3. Glue on a magnet on one side of the cork.
  4. Fill the hole with soil and use a toothpick to prick little holes in the dirt.
  5. Plant the cuttings in the dirt.

    Liebe Vanessa,
    das ist so eine süße Idee!
    Ich bin auch gerade auf dem Trip ;-) alle Räume mit Zimmerpflanzen zu bestücken.
    Wenn dann die Kommunion meiner Großen vorbei ist und ich wieder mehr Muße habe,
    werde ich mir deine Idee nochmals genau ansehen :-)
    Ganz liebe Grüße
    Melanie
