We recently threw my mother a surprise birthday party. The party was wine-themed. I made wine charms for all of the glasses and Pinterest-inspired centerpieces. I used big, plastic wine glasses and filled them with a ton of wine corks. Then, I added a bouquet of flowers to each centerpiece, as well as a bunch of real grapes. They turned out really nice and were such a hit with guests!
After the party, I took a centerpiece home to keep on my dining room table. Once the flowers wilted, I washed the glass and dried out the corks. Now I have SO many corks to use in DIY projects. So I made my mom an agate stone cork bottle stopper and then made myself some cork air plant magnets.
I have so many air plants in the house…STILL! They’re one of the few houseplants that I can actually keep alive. In fact, two of the air plants I used for this project sprouted from parent plants. I’m actually quite proud of that! These plants are small enough that they fit perfectly in the top of a cork.
- Wine corks
- Colorful paint markers
- Washi tape
- Super glue
- 1/2 round magnets
- X-acto knife
- Small air plants
- Cut a hole at the top of the cork big enough and deep enough to snuggly fit a small air plant. Shake out excess cork.
- Wrap a small piece of washi tape about 1/2 inch up from the bottom of the cork. Paint that section with a paint marker. Allow paint to dry.
- Glue a round magnet to the cork. Allow glue to dry.
- Place an air plant in the hole at the top of the cork and display.
