Today we’re teaching you how to make wine cork succulent planters with Southern California succulents – so of course we’re opening a bottle of California red wine

For this DIY project you’ll need:⠀

  • A few wine corks
  • Small succulents (cuttings with either no roots or very small roots work great)⠀
  • Drill and whichever bit works best for your size of corks (5/16 is a safe bet)⠀
  • Cactus soil ⠀
  • A glass of Jetbird Merlot, of course!

Step 1: Drill a hole into your wine cork 

Use a drill to make a hole about ¾ down your cork. You may need to give it a few tries to get a clean opening!

Place these cute little accents on your windowsill, turn them into fridge magnets, or give them away as party favors! 

As they grow, you can transplant them by lightly pulling them out and nestling them into a pot of cactus soil. We recommend transplanting after a couple weeks!
