Bring some green to your kitchen with these cute succulent refrigerator magnets. Start by hollowing out a wine cork (about 3/4 of the way down) using a drill with a small spade bit.

Finally, place a succulent and a small amount of soil inside the cork. Mist with water occasionally to keep the plants hydrated.
