7 crocheted Granny Hexagons
Mod Podge ‘Stiffy’
Disposable Bowl (for the Mod Podge)
Blocking Board (i.e. Boye’s Puzzle Piece – one of these will fit 5 hexagons)
Rust Resistant Pins
Hot glue gun + glue
Glass bowl (for shaping/molding)
Step 1: Crochet 7 granny hexagons and weave in the ends. (**Note: I used Cotton Fair yarn to create my hexagons. This is a cotton/acrylic blend. Keep in mind, if you use another yarn weight and material you may end up with different results!**)
Step 2: Set up your stiffening station! It may be a bit messy, make sure you lay down an old towel or paper towels. Collect all 7 granny hexagons, disposable bowl, Mod Podge ‘Stiffy’, blocking board and pins.
Step 3: Pour Mod Podge ‘Stiffy’ into the disposable bowl. Submerge each hexagon, one at a time. Be sure to coat as evenly as possible. Let the excess drip back into the bowl, then place onto your blocking board. Pin them with your rust resistant pins. Let set for 24 hours.
Step 4: Unpin (and unstick) hexagons from blocking board. Grab your glass bowl and glue gun.
Step 5: Place one hexagon in the middle bottom of the bowl, this will be the base. With your glue gun hot and ready, apply glue to one side of the base hexagon. Take another hexagon and press firmly into the glue to create a side. Working clockwise you will repeat this with the remaining hexagons. Overlap the left corner for each hexagon as pictured below.
When you are finished gluing your bowl should look something like this! Allow hot glue to cool and set, about a few minutes.
