I have been wanting THESE faux succulent magnets for so long but didn’t want to shell out $4 PER magnet on Etsy! My 9 magnets would easily cost $40! I wanted them for my camper so I could have some greenery in there without needing to care for plants (I put them on a steel magnetic strip!). With a little help from Oriental Trading and some luck at the craft store for faux plants I had MORE than enough supplies to make tons!
Faux Succulent Magnet Materials:
I absolutely LOVE the wine corks at Oriental Trading because they are so thick and large – perfect for this craft! Start by drilling a small hole right into the middle of your cork going about a quarter to half way down or less.
I had the toughest time finding faux succulents or greenery that really suited exactly what I wanted in my camper but after months of searching I finally settled on several faux plants. I trimmed off what I needed and measured them by poking them down into the hole in the middle of the cork. Originally I had planned on dabbing some hot glue inside but I found that I didn’t need it.
Once I had the plants inserted into the cork I hot glued the circle magnets onto the back of the cork and let the glue dry.
I am absolutely PSYCHED with how amazing these faux succulent magnets turned out! Now I don’t have to worry about caring for plants during the hot summer months or cold winters in my camper! These magnets will look great year round!
