How to Make Succulent Magnets

November 11, 2014

diy-succulent-magnets-fridgeToss out those boring old refrigerator magnets and give your fridge a much-needed fresh makeover with DIY Succulent Magnets!

We found adorable tiny ceramic pots at our local craft store, but you can use any similar shaped vessel for this craft. One of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing materials for this craft is to make sure you purchase high-grade magnets such as neodymium magnets.

Alternatively, you can forgo the magnet and simply use these as mini succulent planters to decorate a desk space with – the perfect gift for bosses or coworkers!

Succulents should be watered once every 10 days; use an eyedropper to water these mini magnets for best results.

First, add dirt to your mini vessels until it is filled about halfway to the top.

Add in your succulent and then sprinkle with dirt or decorative rocks as necessary to keep it in place. Continue this for all of your succulents and vessels, until you are satisfied with how they look.
