404: the supernova

how do you make a supernova out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 1020 speks and uses 1 color. watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.


the speks supernova step-by-step:

  • step one.

    form a ring of 6 speks. wrap your chain of speks around 3 sides of the ring to create an irregular hexagon. fill in the hole and repeat 80 times (it's meditative and doesn't take too long, promise).


  • step two.

    attach 3 hexagons around another, so they align (not interlock). fold the 3 outside in, to form a mini pyramid. repeat 20 times!

  • step three.

    grab 5 mini pyramids and attach them together in a ring. be sure that the interlocking and aligned edges of each mini pyramid line up with the next!

  • step four.

    add another 5 mini pyramids to the top of each in the ring. make sure those edges match!

  • step five.

    grab another 5, you know what you're doing by now but we'll explain it anyway! attach 5 more mini pyramids. bringe the gap between the last layer and start to enclose the shape.

  • step six.

    make a ring from the last 5 mini pyramids and attach it on top of your build - or add them one by one, you do you!

  • step seven.

    attach 3 speks to each of your shapes point'n corners to finish the build! NICE!

  • the end.
