  • Step 1

    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 2

    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 3

    Make 20 rings of 5 speks each

  • Step 4

    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 5

    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 6

    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!
