These planters are a fun, kid-friendly project and—bonus—the succulents inside are a low maintenance plant that don't require frequent watering. To water, line the planters up once a week (or every two weeks) on a counter and mist with a spray bottle. Let the corks dry completely before putting them back up. That's it!
Pairing knife (or pocket knife)
Hot or craft glue
Hot glue gun (if using hot glue)
Remove the core of the cork by puncturing the top of the cork with a pocket or pairing knife, and wiggling the knife around, carving out a hole. Make sure to go all the way to the bottom (without cutting through to the other side).
Clip off branches or sections of your succulents small enough to fit in the hole.
Insert a succulent in the cork and fill it up to the top with soil.
Attach a magnet to the side of the cork planter with a bead of glue.
Press the magnet into the glue until the glue hardens (allow extra time for craft glue).
