  • Step 1

    Create a ring of 9 Speks. On top of the ring, add another ring that interlocks. Repeat 42 times or until you reach your desired pencil length.

  • Step 2

    To create the eraser, add 2 rings of silver and then 3 rings of pink to the end of the tube.

  • Step 3

    Create a square of 4 black Speks, then using either white or silver, wrap a chain of 9 underneath the square to create a small pyramid shape. Gently attach this shape onto the other end of the pencil to make the lead.

  • Ta-da

    All done!
