  • Step 1

    Start with a ring of 5 speks. Wrap the chain around the ring until there are 5 Speks on each side. This shape will not be flat. Using your splitter card, dig out the two inner rings of the pentagon so that only the two outer rings remain. If they shift slightly out of the pentagon shape don’t worry, they will realign when connected to the other shapes.

  • Step 2

    Repeat 12 times.

  • Step 3

    Using a different color, start with a ring of 6 speks. Wrap the chain around the ring until there are 3 speks on each side. Add two Speks to every other end to create a triangle shape.

  • Step 4

    Repeat 20 times.

  • Step 5

    Align 5 triangles along the edge of the pentagons, continue attaching until the sphere is complete.

  • Ta-da

    All done!
