About this Project

Sisters are doing it for themselves! DIY a custom cooler with your sorority letters and embellish with acrylic paint and sparkly rhinestones.

Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.

    To cover the embossed logo on your cooler, wet the surface with a foam brush. Lay a sheet of plaster onto the cooler surface. Wet the plaster again, adhering it to the cooler. Let dry. Sand down the plaster on each side of the cooler. Prime the cooler with a layer of gesso. Continue to layer on gesso until all surfaces are white and smooth. Let dry.

    Trace a circle in the middle of the cooler. Paint leaves, flowers, and other designs outside of the circle. Repeat the floral pattern on the backside of the cooler, as well as the top. Paint the sides of the cooler with a simple, natural stripe pattern. Paint the handle and any remaining parts of the cooler in a solid color of your choice. Let dry.

    Paint your sorority letters or a fun quote into the circle. To weatherproof the cooler, spray on a few layers of clear acrylic sealant. Let dry.

    Hot glue gems onto the edges of the cooler.
