Diet Coke drinkers of the world- this one’s for you! I’m sure you’ve heard of “Dirty Diet Coke” right? My friends Becky at U Create and Kami from No Biggie recently posted about them.  For this month’s “stripe” theme, I decided to make a Dirty Diet Coke Kit with a cute little stripey painted box for the base.  Someone I visit from church loooooooves Diet Coke and I thought she might enjoy a kit so I made this with her in mind.  I delivered the kit to her and I’m happy to report — she loved it!

Ok- ready to get started?  Here are the supplies you need:


  • Diet Coke
  • Sugar Free Coconut Syrup
  • Limes
  • Cute mason jar plastic cup (I found mine at Walmart but I know Target & Costco has them too)
  • CD crate from Michael’s
  • Paint
  • Brush/sponge
  • Ruler
  • Twine
  • Frog tape
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • cellophane
  • Diet Coke Kit Printable

That list might look long, but you probably have quite a few of those items on hand.  First up, I painted my cd crate.  I purchased it at Michael’s and used a 40% off coupon so it was only a few dollars.  I painted it a base coat of white. I then painted over it with this fun aqua/teal/turquoise color and let it dry.  I was excited to take the tape off to see if worked.  And voila- amazingly crisp lines!  So there you have a fun, basic crate for the Dirty Diet Coke Kit.  This could obviously be used for annnnnything… but I thought it was a fun pop of color for this gift.
(animated GIF below- it loops, so watch through the pictures to see the painted box)

Next I printed off the Dirty Diet Coke printable:

Dirty Diet Coke Printable www.thirtyhandmadedays.comI cut out along the lines and folded where it needed to be folded.  If you have a 1 1/2 inch circle punch, that hole on the “Make your own Dirty Diet Coke” fits perfectly.  If not, just use your scissors.  I compiled everything into the crate like so: Dirty Diet Coke Kit www.thirtyhandmadedays.comI mean- it’s cuter with a printable, right? Isn’t everything?

Wrap it up in some cellophane and attach the tag with twine, ribbon or whatever you have on hand:

UPDATE!  After I decided to do a kit, my friends at Our Best Bites posted another version of Dirty Diet Coke where you add some half and half! If you’re feeling so inclined and wild and crazy, you might want to add that to your DDC.

    This is awesome. Going to a “Favorite Things Party” and need to bring as mine. I bought the coconut syrup, a lime and a can of Diet Coke, but your cute printable finished the look for my gift. Thanks!!

  2. says

    Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog
    and I am impressed! Extremely helpful info specifically
    the last part :) I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular info
    for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  3. Dianne says

    LOVE this idea….so cute! I dont know what I am doing wrong but I can’t get my computer to print this out. Any hints..
    Thanks Dianne

    I’m a DC addict! I’m not a fan of coconut but raspberry is DELISH! I think the term “dirty diet coke” is a western thing because I only ever read it on blogs from UT or ID. In FL we just call it a raspberry DC. Ha! This is SUCH a cute gift idea!!

      Thanks so much! My Diet Coke loving friends can’t get enough of it. I had fun putting the kit together for my friend.

  6. says

    • says

      If we lived a little closer…I totally would! Thanks Jennie. And wooot woooot #1- sitting by the computer pays off sometimes. :) xo

  7. says

    Love this, Mique!! I’ve never had a dirty diet coke either… the curiosity is killing me though {hee-hee}. Thanks for sharing! Have a fabulous week, friend. xo

    • says

      Thanks Kelly! You’ll have to try it out and let me know what you think. My DC addict friends are obsessed!! Have a wonderful week too. ;)

  8. Lisa says

    I need a Coke version and a Dr. Pepper one too! How can I persuade you to make me a verison of these? Your ideas rock! THANKS SO MUCH!!!

    • says

      Thanks so much for the feature Cheryl! I bet you could do Diet Pepsi and it’d give it the same little kick. My vices are Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke- I bet it’d be yum with those too (sadly I gave up soda months ago— so I’ll just live through everyone else ;). xoxo

  9. says

    What a great gift idea. I am a diet coke addict and would welcome this basket! :) I can’t wait to steal this idea and gift someone. Thanks!

  10. says

    What a fun groups of gals for a blog hop- love it! I’ve been hearing about dirty coke forever and didnt know what it was all about- but dang girl- that sounds SO GOOD!!! I’m going to have to try this and give some Dirty Coke gifts!

    • says

      Thanks so much Courtney! Love the fun girls that are in this blog hop. Aren’t all the ideas fabulous? Love them!! Try out the DC and bust out some kits as gifts. Let me know what you think. xo

  11. says

    Yum! A coconut diet coke? That sounds delish…or perhaps make it really dirty with rum ;) for after hours of course!

    • says

      I realized after I posted this that it probably wouldn’t be considered “dirty” for reals by most people’s standards. Ha! (we don’t drink alcohol so adding coconut and lime to a DC is as crazy as it gets around here ;). You’ll have to let me know what you think!

  12. Kelly says

    Such a cute gift idea! I just picked up some of those adorable mason tumblers at Costco. 3 pack for $14.99 and they come with extra straws.

    • says

      I keep hearing about the Costco mason tumblers. I need to get over there!! I avoid it so much because of the craziness and insane lines. But this might be the reason I head over. Thanks for the comment Kelly!

  13. says

    How much do I love this? Thanks so much for such a fun gift idea! I know several friends who would LOVE this gift! You just made me more awesome :) xo

    • says

      How much do I love YOU? I’m still missing my DP and Cherry Coke big time. I bet this would be fab with either of those too. Hope your friends love their DC Kit gift! xoxoxo P.s. Miss you. Ridiculously.

    • says

      Thanks so much for visiting from the 36th Ave Christy! I love Desi. Give it a try and let me know what you think. I have lots of people around me who are hard to buy for….so I like thinking of “out of the box” gift ideas. Have a wonderful week!

    • says

      I will make you whatever your big heart desires. I knew you’d want a Diet Pepsi version. Consider it done. xoxoxo

  14. says

    • says
