Today I want to share a quick little project with everyone!
I made mini wine cork planters! These are so unbearably cute and easy to make!
-Tiny Plants (I used mini cacti!)
-Planting Soil (like a tiny bit)
-Tacky or Hot Glue
-Paint Markers (optional)
First thing’s first, you must hollow out a small hole for the plant to go in. I used an exacto knife to carve out the tiny hole. I carved about a half inch into the cork.
Now if you want to paint your planters, it is time. I painted about half of them just to keep it interesting. Basically just on the more ‘boring’ corks.
Once the paint is dry (if you painted), go ahead and glue a magnet to the back of each one. After the glue is dry (and I learned the hard way: waiting for the glue to dry is important) add a pinch of soil and a drop of water to the hole you carved out, then go ahead and add the tiny plant!
SO CUTE! Mine are hanging out on my fridge for now, but I think it would be cute to have some on my dry erase board!
My post for today is featuring a camera I received as a birthday gift (by request of course) back in December, and I must say, this camera has very quickly become a favorite toy of mine! Better even than my Holga I so dearly love! The camera I’m talking about is the Fuji Instax Mini!
The great thing about the Instax is that it prints out the photos instantly like a Polaroid does! I’ve been taking this camera with me on a lot of adventures lately so it has gotten tons of use!
I love the vintage, old-style feel of the photos!
One problem though, now I have a pile of Instax photos just sitting on top of my dresser…. I need to find something interesting to do with them! I’ve been looking for some inspiration and found some intriguing ideas here and here. I was also thinking of making some sort of nifty scrap book with them. Any suggestions are welcome!
