Can you believe it is almost Spring? It was just Christmas a few days ago and here we are anticipating springtime, or at least, I am. We can either sit in disbelief or we can run with the flying times. Well, I'm in full preparation mood, and what I love about Spring, is the fact that I get to change my whole home decor into a more fun and colorful vibe. I was thinking and thinking of small inexpensive ideas I could do to enhance a Spring-like vibe to my porch, and when I stumbled on these Coca-Cola It's Mine bottles at my local Target, I knew I wanted them as decorative pieces.

 These gorgeous Diet Coke It's Mine bottles are only available for a limited time (while supplies last), and they tastes just the same as the original.  I feel like Diet Coke knows I love them so much that they personalized the bottles for me and of course, all you other Diet Coke lovers, too. Another amazing thing is that no two bottles are the same. It's like the perfect collectible. It's is amazing how both of my guilty pleasures, Diet Coke and Target, helped me to come up with this creative idea! Whoo-hoo!

After devouring my drinks, I saved my beautiful bottles and went into full DIY mode on the weekend. I decided to make a rustic centerpiece for my porch table, since it was plain and boring. Here's what I used and the steps I took to achieve my centerpiece:

  • 4 Diet Coke It's Mine Glass Bottles 12 oz.(there are so many colors you can choose from)
  • 1/4 yard Burlap
  • A roll of twine (use amount as desired)
  • 3 rolls of ribbons (I used colors that reminded me of Spring and compliments the bottles)
  • A tray 
  • Scissors
  • Flowers of your choice 


1. Wrap tray with the burlap fabric and clinch each side onto the tray (as seen in photo) burlap is such a flexible fabric it will ease to the shape you create.
2. Use twine to wrap Coca-Cola It's Mine bottles into pairs

3. Place each pair on the tray you prepared (I slanted mine to add dimension)
4. Add water and your choice of flowers into the bottles (since it is outdoors, I pulled two stalks of Prince Charming from my living room bouquet) and cut wild greens from my backyard.

5. Cut 3 sets of 8 inches of each ribbon and combine a mixture of each color, tie one knot onto wild greens

6. Place ribbon-decorated greens along the edge of the tray. You can also use stones, or shells or whatever you already have in your home to enhance your centerpiece.

And there you have it. In six easy steps you can create a rustic centerpiece for your porch by recycling these beauties. I simply mist the wild greens each morning with water to keep them fresh. They should last a week.

Target is the exclusive carrier so definitely go in store. When you get there check the front sections of each isle (close to the registers) or next to the Beauty section. You'll likely find a display that looks like this:


If you cannot find them at those areas mentioned above, head straight over to Beverages and check the soda section, like here:



Have fun choosing your Coca-Cola It's Mine colors, and if you buy four or more, you get 10 % off (Target Exclusive) automatically at checkout. I'm interested to see what you guys come up with. Comment your ideas below, tag me on any of my social media channels, or email me a picture of your creations. 

Thank you for swinging by loves
