There are plenty of us who have the tendency of saving up on items everyday, corks, plastic boxes, wine bottles, all of them cluttering up in our garage or closet with the hidden intent from our part to find someday a purpose for them. In most cases this will never happen but a creative imaginative DIY-er will find ingenious solutions for almost anything. Once in a while we enjoy a good glass of wine with friends and family and corks tend to be thrown away for having lost their primary purpose. Today we are proposing quite a fun idea: Ingenious Wine Cork Planters For Your Little Plants. You can actually nestle succulents and propagations in wine corks and even transform them into fridge magnets, bringing thus a little bit of greenery in a new unexplored territory. The cork itself, a knife, a magnet and a glue gun is all that is required for such a creative little craft. Cast a glance at our collection and next time you enjoy a bottle of wine think twice before throwing the cork away.
