If you're trying to figure out the perfect gift for your office mates, save some cash and DIY these cute wine-cork magnets. They only cost a few dollars to make and giving a collection is a special way to say you care. So call all your girlfriends, invite them over — with all of their wine corks — and get crafty with this fun project.
Read on for the directions.
What You'll Need:
- Peel-and-stick magnets
- Wine corks
- Scissors or craft knife
- Hot glue gun
- Small succulents
- Tweezers (optional)
- This cute DIY is so simple and comes together in minutes. Start by attaching the magnets to one side of the wine cork. Secure with a bit of hot glue to really hold everything in place.
- Now use a craft knife or scissors to carefully dig out the center of the cork at the same spot where the corkscrew was inserted. You need a small space around one-quarter-inch deep and around the same width.
- Pull away a small stem of a succulent, and gently tuck it in the hole, along with a bit of dirt. You can even use tweezers if you're having a hard time getting things in place.
- That's it! Package a few together in a small box, and give to an office mate or keep for adorning your own fridge. And succulents don't require much care, so a little spritz of water every other week is enough to keep them happy!
