I decided to try to make a small little planter project I found, both in a magazine (maybe Sunset or Good Housekeeping?) and on Pinterest. Yes, they are corks…the left is a wine cork and the right a cork from a Barefoot Champagne bottle.
I ripped the idea out of the magazine awhile ago and put it up on the refrigerator.
Then assembled everything I needed for the project. I actually used the little clamps I buy at Harbor Freight as clamps! (I use them as chip bag clips.) The magnetic strip comes with a sticky backing but I also white-glued the strip on the cork after I had shaved one side flat. Then clamped the strips until the glue was dry. GET used his big construction type drill to make a hole in one end of the cork…overkill of use for the drill he said but it worked! I used the old spoon to place a tiny amount of potting soil into the hole and the brown chopstick to pack the soil around the plant.
I snuck--SHHH!--over to the neighbors to steal two teeny cuttings of a succulent. I have dozens of succulents on the deck back at Laguna Seca but I am still staying in my sister’s home while it is for sale and she has no succulents in her yard.
These tiny little plants will take just a tiny bit of space in my 5th wheel RV home when we are back home. I think I like the champagne cork planter the best! I will try and find some with unique graphics. And I won’t mind the search one bit!
Cheers! Here’s to more teeny planter pots!
