the spexmas tree step-by-step:
start with a ring of 5 speks. wrap a chain of speks around the ring to create a pentagon. continue until each side has 8 speks. the shape will not be flat
repeat step one reducing the number of speks per side by one for each pentagon, making 2 of the smallest with 3 speks per side
make 20 rings of 5 speks each
assembly time! stack 5 rings of 5 to make a tube, then attach the bottom to one of the smallest pentagons and the top to the inside of the largest
stack 3 more rings of 5 on top of the last layer and add the next. stack 2 rings on top of this and add the 3rd largest pentagon
add 2 more rings between the next 2 layers and the final ring before adding the last layer of branches!
you’re done, now get to decorating! want more how-to's? back to speks ed.
want 2 new shape guides a month? just tell us where to send them!
wanna make another shape?
