Who doesn’t love Hexagons?! If you weren’t sure how I felt about them, a quick look at some old projects like my Hexagon Wall Planters and Hexagon Side Table will probably tell you. I’m a fan. No one has ever asked me what my favourite shape is… maybe this isn’t very interesting. In other news, I made some cool artwork! lol. Come check out my DIY Geometric Modern Artwork!

The idea for this project started one afternoon when I was waiting for my paint to be mixed at the Hardware store. My boredom caused me to start pocketing paint chips…. I know they are free, but when you take 25 you start to feel a bit guilty about it… lol. Good thing this project only needs 8!
Here’s everything you need to make it:
Platinum 6 Machine
Hexie and Friends Steel Rule Die Cut
1/64″ thick plywood (Similar)
Beacon 3-in-1 Glue
All you do for this project, is cut out the hexagons with yourPlatinum 6 Machine
and then glue them in place! I used a birch wood background, but you can use cardstock or fabric, or whatever you want!
Here’s a quick video tutorial to show you how simple it is:
I played around with the arrangement for quite a while [just ask my hubby who was annoyed with the craft supplies on the table that he couldn’t move]. I really wanted the ombre affect (moving from darker to lighter colours) and I wanted to leave a lot of negative space. Those features and the clean frame give it the modern edge I was hoping for.
What do you think? Would you use a different shape? Would you hang this in your home? Let me know!
