Be honest. How many hours have you spent looking for your name on a bottle of Share-a-Coke? I’ve been on the hunt for “Amber” on a bottle of Share-a-Coke for more months than I care to admit. The funny thing is this: when I can’t find “Amber,” I buy a bottle with a name that is vaguely similar. I’ve purchased a “Share-a-Coke with Amanda” and a “Share-a-Coke with Ashley.” Mind you, my name is neither Amanda nor Ashley so this strategy makes exactly zero sense. If I’m gonna to buy a bottle with someone elses name, I might as well for for “Share-a-Coke with William” or “Share-a-Coke with Bonquiqui (does that even exist?!)
Well, here’s the good news, I don’t have to hunt anymore. Turns out the Share-a-Coke site lets you customize your own 8oz glass bottle with your own name or a cute saying. It’s great for that summer BBQ you’re planning (Share-a-Coke with a Grillmaster, anyone!?) or for those of you with unique names (Bonquiqui, I’m talking to you, girl!). Let’s a take a look at how I’m dressing up my Share-a-Cokes for this summer season!I picked up this vintage picnic cooler and dressed it up with crafty style. You can create an awesome, customized cooler for toting those Share-a-Cokes to all your sweltering summer soirees. I just added a little vinyl embellishment to a bold red vintage picnic cooler and it’s ready to go!
- I cut this design from white vinyl using my Cricut Explore. I also cut a small piece of transfer adhesive.
- Place the transfer tape sticky-side-down onto the vinyl design
- Peel back the transfer tape and the vinyl design should be stuck to it.
- Place the design directly onto the cooler and rub into place
- Peel back the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl adhered to the cooler
When it came time to customize my bottles, I made sure to make one for baby Markus, since the spelling of his name is one that I’m unlikely to find on shelves. I also added a few fun custom saying including my Instagram handle @damasklove and a special bottle for our city of Miami. As hot as it gets here, I’m sure the city of Miami would love to share a Coke with me.
A few paper pinwheels are the perfect summertime embellishment for straws. Your friends are gonna love sipping their Coke through these playful straws. To make the straws, I used the We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel Punch Board to make 4” pinwheels, which I then glued to paper straws. Easy!
