Chipboard hexagons add bold color and pattern to blank walls, this photo. Enlarge pattern, available at BHG.com/HexPattern, so it measures 17 inches across. Transfer it to a 30×40-inch sheet of .120-inch-thick chipboard—maneuvering the pattern to fit as many as possible, as if you’re cutting cookies. Cut out one shape with a utility knife. Using a straightedge, lightly score the lines that show where to bend the chipboard (visible on the original pattern). Flip the shape over. Bend all six “arms” toward the center using the scored lines. Secure folded tabs to the hexagon interior with hot glue. The folded hexagon should measure 10 inches from corner to corner and project 1 inch from the wall. Repeat to make more hexagons. Paint fronts and edges as desired. (We sprayed them with Rust-Oleum Specialty Metallic Copper and Universal Flat Black, and Valspar white primer.) Let dry. Arrange hexagons in desired pattern on the floor. When satisfied, attach hexagons to wall with pushpins or removable adhesive dots.
DESIGNED BY NATURE, HEXAGONS FIT TOGETHER PERFECTLY—NO MATTER WHICH WAY YOU TURNTHEIR SIX SIDES.
