DIY Hexagon Wall Art

Create this stunning wall art using a few wooden hexagons, some acrylic craft paint and a piece of plywood or particle board. Andrea, the creator of the blog "For the Love of…" includes step-by-step details for painting this creative hexagon wall art. She painted each shape but we think it would be super easy to paint some of Stockade's wooden hexagon laser cut shapes and glue those to the board. This would give a nice 3-dimensional look and allow you to assemble your design at the end.

Find three sizes of laser cut wooden hexagon shapes on Stockade's website.
