  • Step 1

    Form a ring of 6 Speks. Continue wrapping a chain around the ring until a small hexagon forms with 3 speks on 3 sides and 2 speks on 3 sides.

  • Step 2

    Wrap 6 more Speks around the edge as pictured below and fill in the hole.

  • Step 3

    Repeat this until you have a total of 20 irregular hexagons.

  • Step 4

    Assemble them into a sphere shape by aligning the long sides. Begin by aligning 5 as pictured, then continue aligning until the sphere is complete.

  • Step 5

    Using a chain of another color, wrap a cluster of 5 speks around the edge of the holes in the sphere. Complete with a 6th Spek on top for every cluster.

  • Ta da!
