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.
