Coca Cola Planter. Cucumbers and pebbles. DIY craft

Coca-Cola Planter

DIY, inexpensive crafts, dollar store, cheap

Coca-Cola bottles are a fun throwback classic that you can come across at most grocery stores. Coca-Cola bottles are not only fun to drink out of, but they also make for an awesome DIY craft! Let’s get started!

This craft is super simple, inexpensive, and easy! It took my about ten minutes and cost only $13!

Here is what you need:

1. A Coca-Cola bottle

Price: $2

2. Moisture control garden potting soil mix (or anything else you have around the house)

Price: $5-$7

3. Any seeds – I was not able to buy seeds from the store because apparently summer is over already, in case you were fooled by the calendar, so I used cucumber seeds I had laying around the house.

Price: $2-$4

4. Decretive pebbles

Price: $4

What to do:

1. Clean the bottle out with soap and warm water

2. Fill the bottom of the bottle with small decretive pebbles. I used the same pebbles from my terrarium craft. The pebbles will act as a filtration system and give your bottle an interesting detail.

3. Fill the rest of the bottle with soil. This is going to take some patients since the neck of the bottle is narrow. Use a pencil to push the soil down, you can also pound the down on your hand to make sure it is packed down. Full the soil until it is about a quarter of an inch from the top.

4. Dig a hole with your pencil and place in 2-4 seeds. Place the soil over seeds, water and put your Coca Cola bottle in sunlight suggested for the specific kind of seeds.

5. Sit back and enjoy! Once the flowers/veggie start to bloom they will grow out of the bottle for an interesting touch to any home!
