Wine Cork Planters
Aren’t these adorable?
When Kylee Baumle and I were writing our book, Indoor Plant Decor: The Design Stylebook for Houseplants, we decided to include a step-by-step project in every chapter. These too-cute wine cork planters were featured in our “Cheap Chic” chapter, which focuses on plants, planters and accessories for people with a fun, relaxed and cheerful home interior.
We had no idea that it would be one of the most popular images and projects in our book. To be honest, we saw the idea online somewhere, and simply made up our own version — if I had the link to an original source, I’d certainly post it.
For step-by-step directions with pictures, please refer to our book — but it’s super easy to do with simple tools. We drilled a hole in the middle, added a wee bit o’ soil, popped in a succulent clipping and topped it off with a bit of moss to keep it all in place. You can leave them like they are and line them up on your kitchen windowsill, or glue a small magnet to the back and put it on your refrigerator like I do. Mist them weekly to keep them alive, and then transplant into the garden when it’s time to switch them out.
I adore little projects like these — they are totally free if you drink wine and have succulents on hand, and are easy and quick to put together. And if you drink some wine while you’re putting them together….well, now, that’s even more fun.
