Wine cork for mini planters

So, I discovered this wonderful internet site that works like old school magazine idea books. Goodness knows i have lots of those and just can’t bear to part with any of them. It’s called pinterest. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. The only drawback is that once you post.something it belongs to them. That’s how they get around copyright infringement. So I choose only to post one image of what inspires me from my own collection.

Today I made these cute little planters out of pressco corks. I can’t take credit.for the idea, because I did find the image on pinterest. But I can take.credit for.making them into magnets and putting them on a magnetic picture frame. Here’s the.images.

I drilled holes infuse cork for dirt, and two small holes in the backside.for tiny cylinder magnets. They.have to be.reaaly strong. When making the magnet holes, I used a piece of green masking tape to mark how deep to drill, on the drill but itself. Keep.your hands away,.as the flapping tape can cut.you.

Fun aren’t they? They will also stick.to any corner that has been covered in metal, like in my bathroom.

So I’m finishing the sides of my kitchen cupboards with wine stoppers. This serves two functions. Make it pretty, and be able to tack things up if I want to. So far it looks really cool. I’ve burned my finger really bad (note to self and others, keep your fingers out of the drip path of the glue gun) and have ran out of glue sticks. Shopping tomorrow for more.
