My kids are each unique, and I've often amazed at their differences! While my boys are awesome, there is just something so special about raising a daughter, a girl who loves to craft and DIY and make things pretty...just like me! This DIY craft caddy was a fun project for her bedroom.
When shopping at Kroger recently, I spotted the new "It's Mine" Diet Coke bottles and cans. Coca-Cola has created these bottles in a riot of color and no two bottles are the same (kinda like our kids).
The bright colors caught my eye and I decided to incorporate their fun design in Little DIY's room and up-cycle the items into something functional and as unique as she is.
One of the things Little DIY has an overflow of is markers, colored pencils, scissors and other writing implements that take up a lot of space in her room. Three Diet Coke cans came together to make a sweet craft caddy. Here's how I made it.
I purchased a 3/4" dowel rod, which Mr DIY cut down to size for me (10 inches) and added a small drawer knob to the top of the dowel for a handle.
While the glue dried, I grabbed some chalkboard tags that were left-over from my 5-minute Thanksgiving banner. I sharpened my chalk to a point and wet the tip so it would dry bright white on my chalkboard tags.
I wrote the words 'Markers', 'Pencils' and 'Scissors' on them and attached them to the soda cans.
Everything is cuter with a chalkboard tag, right? Plus it's easier to put things away when the storage container is labeled!
Little DIY loves her new craft caddy made from Diet Coke "It's Mine" cans! The bright colors are a perfect match for her room, and the caddy corrals her craft supplies without taking up much space. Plus, it's unique (just like her) and looks adorable on her shelf!
I didn't stop there however. The Diet Coke "It's Mine" bottles I purchased are beautiful and I thought they'd make ideal vases. It really couldn't be simpler.
Every girl likes to have real flowers in her room. It makes her feel special and it's a very small way to say, "I love you"!
The pretty bottles with their vibrant colors add energy and fun to Little DIY's dresser, and they coordinate with her collection of accessories and crafts.
