Best Ways to Use Succulents in Your Home
1. Cork Planters
You’ve probably seen this idea on Pinterest a thousand times before, but making succulent cork planter magnets is super fun, and they’re also easy to make! Grab a few old wine corks, drill tiny holes in them, stuff them with some potting soil, and then plant a small succulent in each of them. You can then add magnets to the backs of your corks, which makes for an easy way to liven up your fridge. We promise they’ll look super cute!
