Make these DIY magnetic wine cork planters as a neat craft to repurpose wine corks. Works as a unique gift to anyone!

This project is perfect for ayone who loves wine and gardening. Or anyone who likes little cute items decorating their home (wine themed decor anyone?). I’ve been inspired by a pin I once saw on Pinterest for this project. A mini cork suc­cu­lent planter mag­net. Does it get any cuter? I don’t think so! It’s sen­ti­men­tal, com­pact, prac­ti­cal, green and stylish. A tiny planter from a wine cork is a project cool enough for Bob Vila to blog, so it’s good enough for me too! Let’s begin.
