  1. Spray your entire cooler with white primer spray paint.
  2. If you can, take off the lid of your cooler. If you can’t, cover the lid with painter’s tape.
  3. Start spraying the bottom of your cooler with the darker pink spray paint and work your way up. Take the cooler all the way up, not including the lid.
  4. Using short bursts, spray the top of the cooler and take it downward slightly. This will create an ombre look.
  5. Spray the lid of your cooler green and re attach to cooler.
  6. Using the dark green craft paint, paint stripes across the lid.
  7. Cut out pieces of black foam sheet into seed shapes and glue them around the cooler.
