How To Tape & Paint Hexagon Patterned Wall


I love a graphic wall treatment, and a hexagon pattern is especially fun. I created a stencil, mixed my own paint, and created a really cool ombre painted hexagon patterned wall.
Cardboard Hexagon Cut Out
The first step is to make the stencil. I have a video showing how I made mine- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjbIsJbfNbo
Essentially what you'll need to do is tape one hexagon to the wall, tape around it, remove it and retape it, tape around that one and keep on repeating until the wall is covered.
Taped Hexagons
Occasionally it helps to stop and make sure everything is lining up, level, and looks "right."
Painting individual hexagons for ombre
For an ombre effect, mix the main color with white (or white/grey/black to lighten and change the color). Start on one end and work the darker/lighter colors more on the other end.
