Magnetic Wine Cork Planters

Magnetic Wine Cork Planters

cork magnet succulent planters

This latest creation has been made by a modern day Martha, my sister, Colleen. Well, she’s a lot more hip than her, but you get the idea.

It all started when she gave a friend of ours a bottle of wine for their 25th wedding anniversary. She wanted them to be able to have a little memento from the evening. After the bottle was empty, I sneaked the cork in my purse(it’s not stealing, because she got it back!). From there my sister worked her brilliance! The couple she was making it for love two things in life, wine and gardening. (yes in that order, jk!) That’s when she remembered being inspired by a photo from Piccsy. A mini cork succulent planter magnet. Does it get any cuter? I don’t think so! It’s sentimental, compact, practical, green and stylish.


  • Corks made from cork not plastic
  • Magnets

    3.  Fill the hole with potting soil and add the succulent.

  1. Great idea , just made my first two …love it look great on the mantle !!! Thanks : )

  2. does this work with Aloe? I just can’t seem to figure out a way to replant it! It just dies!

  3. Thank you so much!!

  4. Look forward to seeing them!

  5. I have stashes of these corks, now I know what to do with them….thank you ! I will post pictures….thank you

  6. That’s adorable. They should have used it in the list.

  7. What a great idea. Wonder if we have a sanding cylinder?!

  8. We’ve used a couple of drill bits and a Dremel tool to hollow out the corks. A small bit as a pilot hole, a larger bit to remove the bulk, and a Dremel with a sanding cylinder to clean out the rest. The dremel works well in that you can get a good sized hole / thin wall on the cork without it splitting.

  9. Succulents are like orchids and need to have a way to breathe and release the water they are given which is why cork is good for them. Plastic would just keep the water in causing the succulent to drown.(: hope that helped
