How To: Make Your Own Magnetic Cork Planters

Recently there has been a lot of online sites with interesting craft projects for wine corks. If you, like me, tend to end up with a larger number of wine corks that you somehow never end up throwing away, this might be a good chance to use the corks for something useful. Here is some pictures from my recent craft project making magnetic cork planters:

Cork project prt 1
All you need is glue, a couple of corks, a tool (small knife etc) to hollow out the corks, the equivalent number of succulent plants, and magnets to stick to the back of the corks.

Hollowing out the corks was a bit harder than I had thought. The cork material is very soft and rubbery, and doesn't give in that easily. Because of that it took a bit longer to get the job done than I would have thought, and it also made it harder to make an even hole for the plant.
Still, with a little bit of help from Yuma it didn't take more than 15-20 minutes to finish the craft project. You can check out the finished result below:
