Diet Coke drinkers of the world- this one’s for you! I’m sure you’ve heard of “Dirty Diet Coke” right? 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
- Cute mason jar plastic cup (I found mine at Walmart but I know Target & Costco has them too)
- CD crate from Michael’s
- Frog tape
- Hole punch
- 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.

Next I printed off the Dirty Diet Coke printable:
I 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: I 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:
