Step 1: Using your darkest color (in our case, blue), spray along the sides of the front of your hat. Make sure to get an even coat on the entire surface, including the brim.
Step 2: Following the first coat, spray the second color (lighter blue) along the first in two even lines. Fill in the middle with your third accent color (green). Wait for all three coats to dry completely.
Step 3: Once your paint has dried, cover your hat with the doily.
Step 4: Smooth the doily around your hat, making sure it's completely flat against the hat's surface.
Step 5: Once your hat is completely covered, lightly spray white across the holes in the doily.
Step 6: And, bang, you can enjoy your new "snakeskin"-printed hat!
