DIY Friday~Save your wine corks! {Mini Succulent Wall Display}

This Friday I’m using what I have around my home to make a super easy DIY project. PLUS wine corks & succulents are my current fav! I’m upcyclding the wine corks and transforming them into mini succulent holders, so cute! I have been collecting my wine corks for a while and I was trying to figure out a unique way to use them. While pinteresting (so funny that this is now something you “do”) I came across these cute succulent holders just using wine corks. It was meant to be used as a magnet, but I wanted to take it a bit further. I recently bought paint and had a paint stick sitting right on the table. My creative mind just clicked and I put these two ideas together. So, this Friday it’s another really easy DIY project for busy moms. We’re making a mini succulent wall display. Surprisingly propagating succuluents is easy to do, and it’s a plant that doesn’t require too much tender loving care (perfect for busy moms).

  • favorite color spray paint
  • favorite ribbon
  • paint stick
  • hot glue gun
  • 3 wine corks
  • small binder clip
  • 3 succulent leaves
  • knife

{Steps}

1. spray paint your paint stick with your favorite color. I used a cotton candy pink and lightly sprayed the white paint on top to make it a bit lighter.

2. use your knife to cut out a hole in the middle of the wine cork

3. pour a small amount of dirt into each hole and place a succulent leaf inside

4.take your binder clip and place it at the top of your paint stick

5. tie a ribbon at the top

That’s it! Super easy and so adorable.
