407: the spexmas tree

how do you make a christmas tree out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 512 speks and uses multiple colors.

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

the spexmas tree step-by-step:

  • step one.

    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


  • step two.

    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

  • step three.

    make 20 rings of 5 speks each

  • step four.

    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

  • step five.

    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

  • step six.

    add 2 more rings between the next 2 layers and the final ring before adding the last layer of branches!

  • the end.

    you’re done, now get to decorating! want more how-to's? back to speks ed.
