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!

Crochet Hanging Planters

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share a little weekend project I did recently! I haven’t done a croceht project in a while. Mostly because the majority of crochet projects are winter related items… and winter is the last thing I want to think about right now… but this project is not something to keep me warm. I made hanging planters!

This project was quick and simple. I didn’t use a pattern. I simply took one of the flower pots I wanted to go in my hanging planters and crocheted a circle the same size as the bottom. I then did three rounds of double crochets. After I had three of those, I attached them all together and made straps to tie the hangers to my doorway. I think it adds a nice touch to my little space!

Now that this project is finished… I am kind of getting amped up for crochet season… even if I wish it didn’t come with the cold weather!

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a wonderful week!

Mini Cacti Gardens

Hello, all!

Today I want to share a small project I did over a weekend! I stopped and picked up a variety of little cacti and succulents from Home Depot. I wanted to make some little cacti gardens!

I got started right away with separating the individual cacti and planting them into the planters I made and also a few other containers I had.

For this DIY all you need is some flower pots to paint, spray paint (pick two colors. I chose white and gold!), and some tape!

Step One: Pick your first color and apply a coat of spray paint to the planter. Allow that to dry completely.

I planted some nice succulents in all of my little planters and a nice (I don’t remember what it is) vine plant in my bigger one! I love trying to bring the outside into my space!
