how do you make a star out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 482 speks and uses 1 color.


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


the speks star step-by-step:

  • step one.

    create a chain and make a ring of 5 speks. wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each of the sides is 3 speks long, add a spek to the center. repeat once to make 2 pentagons.

  • step two.

    create a new chain and make a ring of 6 speks. wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each of the sides is 4 speks long. add a spek to the center, 5 to the top and 3 to the bottom as shown.

  • step three.

    repeat step two until you have 10 total irregular hexagons.

  • step four.

    arrange 5 irregular pentagons around a pentagon and attach as shown. make sure the shapes align and do not interlock.

  • step five.

    join the edges of each irregular pentagon to form a star shaped half, this shape will not be flat.

  • step six.

    repeat steps four and five to create a second star half, position each half facing out and away from the other. join the halves, starting at the points then moving along all edges.

  • nailed it.
