the speks pentagon step-by-step:

  • step one.

    create a ring of 5 speks. wrap your chain of speks around the ring to create a pentagon. continue until each side has 8 speks. the shape will not be flat.

  • step two.

    repeat step one reducing the number of speks per side by one for each pentagon.

  • step three.

    starting with the two largest pentagons, one face up and one face down, interlock one edge and fold the shapes together.

  • step four.

    repeat with the next smallest pentagon until they’re all stacked together.

  • step five.

    finish by adding a spek to the points and ta-da!
