Taking a cooler and making this styrofoam planter.

MAKE YOUR OWN STYROFOAM PLANTER FROM A COOLER
I belong to several creative Facebook groups and I love seeing other people’s creativity.
Recently, I came across a Styrofoam planter made from a cooler from Lisa. Here’s what I LOVE about this project…
A lot of these inexpensive coolers are used and then tossed or hopefully recycled. You can usually pick one up for a couple of bucks for a picnic or outing. After that, you either have to store it or find something to do with it. Sometimes people donate them however not all places take them.
**This project is best done outside.
Take a bread knife and remove any lip on the edge and the sharp square looking edges.
Using that same bread knife, rough up the outside of the cooler.
Use a heat gun to harden the outside of the Styrofoam. Do NOT keep the gun on the foam very long…just wave it around.
Drill holes in the bottom for drainage.
Lisa used leftover paint, instead of a concrete mix, for the outside.
Isn’t it great?
