Green Idea: DIY magnetic planters

What to do with the little shoots and clippings from your houseplants?

While at an arts and vintage gallery store in Jersey recently, I came across these tiny cork planters that had been hollowed out, attached to a small magnet, and filled with tiny jade plant sprigs. Makes a lovely addition to any file cabinet or refrigerator—or you can make your own floating window box by adhering a magnetic strip to any window or wall. The sky's the limit!
