how do you make a star sphere out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 612 speks and uses 2 colors.


watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.


the speks star sphere step-by-step:

  • step one.

    create a chain of speks 50 long, arranged in the pattern below.

  • step two.

    attach the first spek in the chain to the fifth and wrap until you have a pentagon with 5 speks on each side (the whole chain baby)!

  • step three.

    build 11 more pentagons (12 total).

  • step four.

    pick a pentagon and align another on each of its sides (x2).

  • step five.

    pack ‘em up and the pieces of each half will snap into place, then join the two to complete your build!

  • the end.
