Just like that I blinked and my oldest daughter became a tween, something my heart wasn’t quite ready for! I remember the exact moment she officially became a tween. It was just like another other evening, me cooking in the kitchen, my nine year old (Skye) playing in her room and the younger two playing together in the living room. While setting up the dinner table a hear a loud thump behind me. I turn around to find Skye standing behind a large plastic tote packed full of every stuffed animal she owned and all of her childlike toys. She looked at me and said “Mom, please donate all of this” and she went back to her room. Wasn’t it just yesterday I was tucking her in alongside dozens of stuffed animals and tripping over littlest pet shop toys on my way out of her room? Then later that night she informed me that all she wanted for Christmas was stuff to make her room look like a teenager’s. As sad as I was to see my sweet girl grow, I embraced it and came up with some easy DIY decor for my tween daughter’s room!
I truly enjoy upcycling and turning items that we so easily toss in the trash into something beautiful that can be utilized around the house. I was making my weekly grocery shopping trip at Kroger this week and came across these stunning glass It’s Mine Diet Coke bottles! Coca-Cola has created new, uniquely packaged bottles and the amazing part… no two bottles are the same! My creative wheels started spinning and I immediately thought about how perfect these bottles would look in my daughter’s room. They are funky, colorful, unique and would match any room theme. I had such a difficult time choosing just four, there were so many gorgeous patterns and designs!
My daughter had a ton of bracelets and necklaces scattered around her desk and I thought they would look so much nicer draped around the Coke bottles. In addition to the jewelry, we also took an artificial flower and attached it to one of the bottles. I found items throughout her room that matched the bottles, such as the owl piggy bank and a perfume bottle. We also purchased a string of lights to really help the greens in the Coke bottles pop.
We draped the bracelets on the bottles according to size. For the necklaces I wrapped them around twice and then clipped it in the back to keep them in place. The artificial flowers are easy to attach using the stem, however you can use a glue gun to keep it permanently in place.
I was so thrilled that we were able to take a simple book shelf and make it colorful and unique! This book shelf once displayed toys, but is now fit for a tween. The best part is that we were able to upcycle, use items she already owned and not have to spend a ton of money to transform her room from kid to tween.
I am so impressed with how these came out!
I just can not get over how gorgeous these bottles are! The bottles are only available for a limited time (while supplies last) and feature the same great taste of Diet Coke that Diet Coke fans love! So make sure to head to Kroger and get them before they are gone so you can find a creative way to upcycle with them.
Diet Coke bottles for more than just a beverage, there are so many creative ways you can upcycle them into something useful for everyday life! I would love to know how you would upcycle these bottles and display them in your home, leave your creative ideas in the comment section below!
