Last month Coca Cola unveiled their uniquely designed one of a kind Diet Coke bottles named “It’s Mine” at Kroger stores all over the country. The bottles were displayed on an end cap just before you get to all of the other sodas. Diet Coke fans will love these new bottles and cans because each one looks like an original piece of artwork. For a limited time, you can find these select colorful patterns on 12-oz glass bottles, aluminum bottles, mini cans and 6-pack ½ liters. What’s even cooler is that no two designs are alike.
These new innovative packaging designs were created in partnership with HP, which automated millions of unique graphics based on 36 primary designs. The patterns were inspired by the “bubbles, fizz, taste and spirit” of Diet Coke.
I hit up my favorite Kroger and picked up 4 bottles for each one of us to go with dinner. Aren’t they cute!
If you’ve followed me for any length of time than you know I don’t really like to share
any thing that much. But since hubby loves Diet Coke so much I guess I’ll share these with him. Typically we’d just put all of the glass with our recycling but I figured this would be the perfect time to do some DIY crafts with the girls. Remember I’m the farthest from being crafty so when I realized how cute the bottles were decorated I couldn’t resist making them into fancy schmancy vases for my flowers. First off the decorating part is already done…easy peasy! There’s something about fresh flowers that just brighten up the entire house. My old neighbor use to bring my flowers every other week and I’d forgotten how much they can pretty up the house since my decorating skills are sub par…to say the least! I would try to grow them but I’ve also failed in that area so I’d much rather just hit up Kroger and grab some while I’m there picking up the cute Diet Coke bottles.
This craft has to be one of the easiest things I’ve ever done. Typically I turn to Pinterest and my recreations are usually epic fails. -_- In case you missed it I once tried to make this cute play area for my daughter. After that I pretty much realized that me and crafty don’t go together. But this is so easy that I child could do…and she did! The only thing I had to do was cut off the stems of the flowers and my little one did the rest!
To make this cute upcycled vase you will need the following items:
- empty Diet Coke bottles
- fresh flowers
- water (don’t want the purty flowers to die!)
Next all you need to do is cut the stems off to the desired height, add some water, your flowers and viola! That’s it y’all! Like for real…can’t get ANY easier than that! Now take that Pinterest! I just love this combo of orange, green and white with the flowers, too!
Now if you’re like me and you want to just kick back and enjoy your Diet Coke you have to do it with a crazy straw, right?!?! I mean there’s really no other way to enjoy a soda in a bottle. Am I right or am I right? Actually I stole this from my 6-year-old so don’t tell her!
These bottles are only available for a limited time (while supplies last) and still has the same great taste of Diet Coke that you all love!
What do you think? Is this something you’d be able to re-create as well?

Those bottles are so cute. I like bright and colorful stuff. I’m telling your baby you stole her straw…betta watch out next time we’re on snapchat 🙂
Ssshhhh hush your mouth Dani! I’m always stealing her stuff and she’s non the wiser! Yea I’m semi obsessed with these bottles now and once these flowers wilt and die (which won’t be long in this house) I’m going to figure out something new to use them for!

Wow I really really love those bottles. Unfortunately, I don’t drink coke or any dark soda anymore. I had to let my addiction go. 😡

Haha!! Trust me we ALL have Pinterest Fails–and for kids the only thing that matters is if they enjoy it, so it sounds like a win to me ! This beautiful vase is also definitely another one for the win column!
