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.

Memory Keeper Birthday Calendar DIY



Never forget a birthday again!

This project was really fun to create and was interesting to see where so many birthdays and anniversaries fall in the calendar year. All the wooden pieces were easy to paint and only required a top coat (the edges are dark as they have been cut with a laser). You could choose to paint all of the individual date tiles or leave them natural (with a coat of varnish) as we did.

Hanging from the memory keeper plaque are wooden tiles representing the months of the year (J-D) and below them are birthday and anniversary tiles. You can choose to hang simple wooden circles or squares and write the name and birthday on the tiles or, as we've done in this sample, use Stockade's date tiles representing the individual's birthday date and then simply write their name above. We used the heart tiles to represent anniversaries.

This would be great to paint as a Mother's Day gift!
