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.
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.

How to Make Heart-Shaped Succulent Magnets
Start by tracing the outer edge of your cookie cutter onto a thin piece of cardboard. Cut it out and use E6000 to glue the cardboard to the back of the cookie cutter.
Next hot glue a succulent in the center of the cookie cutter then glue any greenery, small flowers, and moss to fill up the heart.
