Read the steps

  • Step 1

    Create two rings of 16 Speks. Stack them on top of each other so that they interlock.

  • Step 2

    Wrap a chain of Speks around the outside of each ring so that they all interlock. The outer rings will form a hexagonal shape.

  • Step 3

    At one “corner” of the hexagonal shape, gently push until an edge 2 Speks long is formed. Repeat this action at the opposite end so that you form a diamond shape as pictured above.

  • Step 4

    Flip the diamond over and place 4 Speks thusly.

  • Step 5

    With this side still facing upwards, gently bend the points of the diamond downwards so that the newly placed Speks slide into the open joints.

  • Step 6

    Repeat the above steps 4 more times. Join each diamond along the edges so that they align.

  • Ta-da

    All done!
