Make these adorable Heart Shaped Succulent Magnets for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or just to give to someone special. And don’t forget to make a few for yourself!
I made these two succulent magnets in about 20-minutes using two heart shaped metal cookie cutters and a few faux succulents. Originally I set out to use real succulents but the two stores I visited had really large plants!
My local craft store had these adorable faux succulent packs in a variety of colors. Each pack was a couple of dollars and unlike real plants, they won’t die and don’t need to be watered — a win win!
I love how these little magnets came out. They’re like a mini floral bouquet for my refrigerator.
Below is a list of supplies used and how to make them.
Supplies You’ll Need
- 3 or 4-inch heart shaped cookie cutters
- Thin cardboard (like a shirt box)
- Faux succulents
- Floral moss
- E6000 Adhesive
- Hot glue gun
How to Make Heart Shaped Succulent Magnets
Start by using your heart cookie cutter as a template to make the back of your magnet . This will also serve as a base to glue the succulents to.
Then use E6000 to glue the cardboard to the back of the cookie cutter.
Next hot glue the succulents in place starting with the largest ones then gluing smaller succulents around it.
Last use E6000 to glue a magnet to the back.
