Here's a clever way to a touch of nature to your kitchen space: Recycle your wine corks by transforming them into mini planter magnets. This simple project will take only a few minutes, and the best part is that you probably already have everything you need on hand.

Also, this DIY project is also a fun way to propagate succulent cuttings. Just make sure you spritz your succulents every few days to make sure they are happy and healthy.
