Need Materials

3 Hexagonal wooden cups
Mitre saw or hand saw
1/4″ wide patterning tape
White acrylic paint
Wood glue
Heavy card stock or chip board
Basic crafting materials: ruler, pencil, scissors & paint brush


Begin by drawing a diagonal line with a ruler on the side facets of each cup, towards the base. I chose to draw the diagonal at a 22.5 degree angle. Set your mitre saw to the angle drawn on the cups. In my case I set the saw to 22.5 degrees. Saw along the angled pencil line, cutting off the base of each cup.

Tape 1/4″ horizontal stripes around each cup with patterning tape. Start at the mouth of the cup and work your way down to the bottom. Press tape down firmly to prevent paint from seeping underneath. Do your best to line up the stripes from cup to cup. Paint the outside of the cup, the rim of the cup and as well as the inside with acrylic paint. Allow to dry and apply another coat.

Trace around the bottom of the angled cup onto the underside of the card stock. Repeat twice more. Cut out the 3 hexagons. These will serve as the bottom of the cups.

Turn cups upside down and attach the card stock hexagons to bottom of each cup with wood glue.

Then attach the 3 cups together, side-by-side with wood glue. Allow to dry and fill with your favourite supplies!
