Have you seen these new Diet Coke “It’s Mine” glass bottles out in stores now? The first time I walked into my neighborhood United grocery store and saw the display, I stopped dead in my tracks. They were stunning.
The designs were all different and I couldn’t make up my mind which one I liked best so I bought four. The minute I saw them I knew I wanted to recreate the unique designs for my place and also for my niece. She’s an artist and we will be redoing her room for her birthday so I wanted to make her something she could always have around that was from me.
The bottles are only available for a limited time (while supplies last) and feature the same great taste of Diet Coke that we all love! I know in my house, there is always a case of Diet Coke in the fridge.
Be sure and go out and pick up some of these awesome Diet Coke “It’s Mine” bottles while they are available.

Lime green and blue are my favorite colors so I recreated my blog logo on this thin wooden piece using this Diet Coke “It’s Mine” bottle as inspiration. I put it up in my kitchen and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I’ve also recently gotten into bullet journaling so I will be using some of these designs as inspiration in my collection pages too.
Wood piece from hobby store
Lime Green and Turquoise paint
Round shaped items to make the cirlces (I used the end of a pen and the end of a milk can USB drive)
Using the pencil, write out your saying/design in the middle of the wood piece. Use a ruler as a guide to ensure even lines. The pencil allows you to erase your writing if you make a mistake.
Paint turquoise dots all around the wood surface. Let the paint dry. Using the lime green paint, make larger dots all around, making them closer together as you get to the bottom of the wood piece.
Once paint is dry, outline your writing in pencil with a black pen. Paint any design work.
You can hang on the wall or use on a stand as I have done in my kitchen.
For my niece Sydni, I wanted to incorporate a chalk board with her room that she could place on her door. As a teenager, she’s always trying to keep her brothers out of her room so I wanted something she could leave messages on her door for when she didn’t want to be disturbed. I have several pieces around my place that have her writing on it or her messages to me that I keep up so I love the idea of her having the same for me in her room.
When she was young, her favorite color was pink. Then purple. It seems to always change so I used multiple colors for her design and got inspired to just keep going with different elements on this piece. I tied some chalk to skewers and placed them inside the inspiration bottle that she can put on her desk for easy use.
Orange, green, purple, turquoise and yellow paint
Paint brushes (small and medium size)
Corrugated alphabet letters
Chalk (in different colors)
Hot glue gun
Using the bottle for inspiration, paint some of the design elements around the wood perimeter of the chalkboard sign. Let paint dry.
Color the alphabet letters to match the design.
Using a hot glue gun, place the letters and glue to the wood base.
To make the chalk skewers, place a small amount of glue on the skewer to make a line. Adhere the chalk to the skewer. Cut a long piece of twine to wrap around the chalk that has been glued to the skewer. Add a tiny bit of glue to hold the twine in place. Start at the top and work your way down. Adhere the end piece with a dot of glue to hold in place. Place the skewers in the inspiration bottle.
